Supernormal oxygen delivery goal therapy
Patients will be aged over 70 yr and weight over 35 kg, and undergoing proximal femur fracture (PFF) surgery under peripheral nerve block and laryngeal mask airway anesthesia.
Procedure: Supernormal oxygen delivery goal therapy
A 10% increase in stroke volume (SV) after fluid challenge (5 ml/kg) with Ringer's lactate solution will be deemed positive. Oxygen delivery will be check when fluid challenge becomes negative. If oxygen delivery index (DO2I) can not be greater than 600 mL/m2, then dobutamine will be started at a dose of 2.5 μg/kg/min and increased by the same increment every 20 minutes until the described target is reached or until a maximal dose of 10 μg/kg/min is given. Dobutamine is decreased in dose or discontinued if the heart rate is above 100 beats per minute or shows signs of cardiac ischemia. Blood transfusions will be used to maintain a hemoglobin concentration over 8mg/dL.
Augmentation of oxygen delivery using fluids with or without inotropes has been shown to improve surgical outcome in high-risk patients. Patients with proximal femoral fracture are considered high risk. However, most of this cohort elderly patients have poor cardiovascular condition and may not achieve the oxygen delivery goal. We will perform an observational pilot study whether the supernormal oxygen delivery is a valid hemodynamic goal for patients with proximal femoral fracture.
