Abstract

Sepsis patients normally suffer microcirculatory dysfunction, which results in organ failure and increased risk of death [1]. Importantly, microcirculatory distress is the only independent factor for predicting patient outcome if it is not treated within 48 hours [2]. Therefore, analyzing oxygen transport and utilization can potentially assess microcirculation function and metabolic condition of an individual.
