System for measuring oxygen and carbon dioxide in tissues
Hemorrhage is responsible for more than 35% of pre-hospital deaths and greater than 40% of deaths within the first 24 hours of arrival to a trauma facility. These numbers can reach 90% in the military environment. Traditional vital sign measurements, systolic blood pressure and oxygen saturation, fail to provide sufficient advanced warning of hemorrhage until after the onset of cardiovascular collapse. Clearly earlier recognition of hemorrhage will be beneficial in allowing intervention before the onset of circulatory shock.
