Microvascular perfusion and tissue dissolved oxygen provide valuable insights into the study of ischemic stroke and hemorrhagic shock

Animal models of stroke and hemorrhagic shock are widely used to develop and assess different life-saving treatments. With stroke, it is essential to restore blood flow and oxygen to the brain to prevent associated morbidity. In hemorrhagic shock, priorities include attenuating blood loss and restoring blood volume and pressure. Thus, blood perfusion and tissue
