BACKGROUND: Accurate assessment and monitoring of the cardiocirculatory function is essential during major pediatric and pediatric cardiac surgery. Invasive monitoring of cardiac output and oxygen delivery (DO(2)) is expensive and sometimes associated with adverse events. Measurement of central venous oxygen saturation (ScvO(2)) is less invasive and may reflect the DO(2). Therefore, we investigated the correlation of ScvO(2) with cardiac index (CI) and DO(2) and in comparison the more common monitored parameters heart rate (HR) and mean arterial pressure (MAP) with DO(2) in an animal experimental setting. METHODS: In five fasted, anesthetized and mechanically ventilated piglets CI (transpulmonary thermodilution), venous and arterial blood gases, HR and MAP was measured during normal conditions, volume loading, inotropic support, and exsanguination. RESULTS: In the five piglets 168 measurements could be performed. In a wide hemodynamic range (CI 22-335 ml x kg(-1) min(-1)) we found significant correlations of ScvO(2) with DO(2)) (r(2) = 0.91, P < 0.0001) and CI (r(2) = 0.88, P < 0.0001) and also between DO(2) and MAP (r = 0.86, P < 0.0001) and HR (r = 0.19, P < 0.05). CONCLUSIONS: ScvO(2) is a better parameter for indirect estimation of DO(2) than MAP and heart rate. Measurement of ScvO(2) is simple and does not necessitate additional invasive techniques. In the clinical setting ScvO(2) should be used in combination with other standard vital parameters, i.e. MAP, central venous pressure, lactate, base excess, and urine output.
