Abiotic substitutes are synthetic oxygen carriers and are currently primarily perfluorocarbon based.

Nevertheless, the base deficit and/or lactate should be measured routinely in these patients until they have returned to normal levels. Mixed venous oxygen saturation The percentage saturation of oxygen returning to the heart from the body is a measure of the oxygen delivery and extraction by the tissues. Accurate measurement is via analysis of blood drawn from a long central line placed in the right atrium. Estimations can be made from blood drawn from lines in the superior vena cava but these values will be slightly higher than those of a mixed venous sample (as there is relatively more oxygen extraction from the lower half of the body).
