Project Summary

The purpose of this study was to evaluate a goal-directed therapy protocol approach to canine patients in shock that includes tissue oxygen levels (StO2) as measured by the InSpectra Tissue Spectrometer. Unfortunately, there were a number of un-anticipated hurdles since the start of this study that created significant difficulties in enrolling the proposed goal of patients. The clinicians that had a role in the recruitment and use of this monitor gained an understanding of the limitations of clinical trials with this population of patients and will be able to apply this knowledge to future projects.


None at this time.
