39 advance of detectable changes in the primary hemodynamic variables, and a downward trend may alert the clinician to intervene. A decline in SvO2 may be the first indication of occult bleeding, incipient pump failure, or impending cardiac arrest. Conversely, an increasing SvO2 may signal the onset of sepsis. A growing literature documents rapid and convincing changes in SvO2 accompanying drug therapy (vasopressors, vasodilators, sedatives), intravascular volume manipulation (diuresis, fluid infusion, transfusion), position shifts, and ventilatory changes.

The value of mixed-venous blood analysis is best understood in the framework of tissue O2 demandsupply dynamics. Briefly, the product of CO and arterial oxygen content defines the overall rate of O2 delivery. Each organ receives a variable percentage of the total amount, a flow that may be luxuriant, just adequate, or insufficient to satisfy its aerobic metabolic demand. The O2 tension (PvO2) and saturation (SvO2) of the venous effluent reflect the balance between supply and need. When flow does not rise to meet increased tissue demands, more O2 is extracted from each milliliter of capillary blood, and PvO2 and SvO2 fall.

Failure to inflate the balloon adequately, slow passage of the catheter through the heart, and insertion of an excessive length of catheter are likely contributors. Special caution should be exercised if the patient is hypoxemic or has an electrolyte disturbance at the time of instrumentation. Complete heart block has been reported to follow insertion of the Swan-Ganz catheter in patients with preexisting conductor system disease, as transient right bundle branch block occurs commonly during this procedure.
