This study suggested that in the early 6-hr resuscitation period, masseter tissue oxygen saturation accurately identified patients with severe sepsis and central venous oxygen saturation >70%. Both masseter tissue oxygen saturation and deltoid tissue oxygen saturation but not central venous oxygen saturation or thenar tissue oxygen saturation are strong predictors of 28-day mortality.
