Tissue hypoxia is a common end product of circulatory shock and a primary target for resuscitation efforts. In this issue Podbregar and Mozina show that thenar tissue O saturation (StO ) and mixed venous O saturation (SvO ) co-vary in patients in left ventricular failure, but in patients with sepsis StO was higher than SvO . Although StO may co-vary with SvO they have different determinants such that after shock StO may increase well before SvO as a result of increased O demands to repay O debt incurred during hypoperfusion. Thus, the use of StO alone to define the endpoint of resuscitation may be misleading. © 2007 BioMed Central Ltd. 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2
