Gastric tonometry

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Gastric tonometry was originally proposed to assess the splanchnic perfusion. Several technological improvements have been introduced over the years and, to date, the preferred way to estimate the splanchnic perfusion is to rely on the arterial-gastric PCO2 gap. In this brief review we will discuss the value of the gastric tonometry, its physiological background and the clinical results observed so far.
