Mixed venous oxygen saturation as an index of goal-directed therapy in postoperative care after cardiac surgery.
2015 (English)Conference paper, Poster (Other academic)
Background: Adequate mixed venous oxygen saturation (SvO2) indicates sufficient oxygen supply and better prognosis after cardiac surgery.
Aim: In this study, clinical significance of SvO2 as an index of goal-directed therapy in postope-rative care after cardiac surgery was retrospectively assessed.
Methods: SvO2 was collected postoperatively from 741 consecutive adult patients under-going different types of cardiac surgery. SvO2 on admission to ICU was defined as base point (SvO2base). SvO2 was followed every 6 hours or whenever necessary to evaluate efficacy of postoperative therapy in the first 24 hours. Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) analysis was used to analyze changes of SvO2 (△SvO2) in relation to hospital mortality.
Results: SvO2base demonstrated significant discriminatory power with regard to hospital mortality ( AUC 0.70; 95% CI 0.57-0.81; P=0.000). The best cutoff for SvO2base was 56.8%. Average △SvO2A for patients with SvO2base ≤56.8% (Group A ) was 10.6%. The best cutoff for △SvO2A with regard to hospital mortality was 6.6%, with a sensitivity of 0.68 and speci-ficity of 0.72. The negative predictive value was 91.2%. Average △SvO2B for patients with SvO2base>56.8% (Group B) was -2.4%. The best cutoff for △SvO2B with regard to hospital mortality was -4.5%, with a sensitivity of 0.61 and specificity of 0.79.The negative predictive value was 99.5%.
Conclusion: An increase of SvO2 by more than 6.6% in patients with SvO2base≤56.8% may improve prognosis significantly. Goal of ICU therapy for patients with SvO2base> 56.8% should be to avoid a drop of SvO2 by more than 4.5%, in order to prevent from worsened prognosis.
