Background.Continuous and minimally invasive near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS)-derived gastric tissue oxygen saturation (GStO2) and muscle tissue oxygen saturation (MStO2) were evaluated in a clinically relevant porcine model of hemorrhagic shock and abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS).Methods.Phenobarbital-anesthetized swine underwent pulmonary artery catheter insertion for mixed venous oxygen saturation (SvO2) measurement and midline laparotomy to permit placement of a gastric NIRS probe, a jejunal (regional carbon dioxide [PrCO2]) tonometer, superior mesenteric artery (SMA) flow probe, and a portal vein oxygen saturation (SpvO2) catheter. A muscle NIRS probe was placed on the front limb. After randomization, Group 1 underwent hemorrhage and resuscitation. Group 2 had no hemorrhage or resuscitation. ACS was induced by peritoneal fluid infusion in both groups. A significant decrease in SMA flow, SpvO2, GStO2, SvO2, and MStO2 was observed after hemorrhage in Group 1 and with abdominal hypertension in both groups.Results.GStO2 significantly correlated with SMA flow (Group 1: r2 = 0.90; Group 2: r2 = 0.83) and mesenteric oxygen delivery (mesenteric oxygen delivery, Group 1: r2 = 0.73; Group 2: r2 = 0.89). MStO2 significantly correlated with SvO2 (Group 1: r2 = 0.99; Group 2: r2 = 0.65) and systemic oxygen delivery (SDO2, Group 1: r2 = 0.60; Group 2: r2 = 0.88). Tonometer-derived PrCO2 values did not change at any time point in either group.Conclusions.NIRS measurement of GStO2 and MStO2 reflected changes in mesenteric and systemic perfusion respectively during hemorrhage and ACS.
