Thoracic epidural anesthesia increases tissue oxygenation during major abdominal surgery.

PMID:  14633566     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
IMPLICATIONS: Thoracic epidural anesthesia blunts the decrease of subcutaneous tissue oxygen tension caused by surgical stress and adrenergic vasoconstriction during major abdominal surgery. Consequently, combined general and epidural anesthesia helps to provide sufficient tissue oxygenation.
