This results in an increased affinity for oxygen and significantly decreases oxygen availability to tissues, which will require increased cardiac output to maintain tissue oxygenation. The arterial PaO2 should be maintained between 80 and 100 mmHg with the lowest possible oxygen concentration. It has been shown that respiratory muscles require a disproportionate share of the total cardiac output, and therefore other organs are deprived of necessary blood flow and lactic acidosis is potentiated.

For practical purposes, if the patient is producing a normal quantity of normal quality urine, he or she is not in shock. Another vital perfusion bed that reflects the adequacy of nutrient flow is the brain itself. Because adequate nutrient flow is a necessary, but not the only, requirement for cerebration, consciousness can also be used to evaluate the adequacy of nutrient flow in the patient with shock. 2 INDIRECT MEASUREMENT OF FLOW In many patients in shock, simply laying a hand upon their extremities will help to determine flow by the cold, clammy appearance of hypoperfusion.
