It is possible to measure skeletal muscle tissue oxygenation (StO2) using near infrared spectroscopy(NIRS). It is performed non invasively. We want to compare usually used invasive methods for assessing adequacy of flow to StO2 in critically ill. Aim is to faster and non invasively estimate adequacy of flow to make therapeutic algorithms efficient.
