One of the challenges in the management of acute blood loss is to differentiate whether blood transfusion is required or not. The sole use of haemoglobin values might lead to unnecessary transfusion in individual cases. The suggestion is that mitochondrial oxygen tension can be used as an additional monitoring technique to determine when blood transfusion is required. In this case report, we report mitochondrial oxygen measurements in a patient with perioperative blood loss requiring blood transfusion.
