Tissue perfusion

Definition

noun

The volume of blood that flows through a unit quantity of the tissue, and is often expressed in unit: ml blood/100 g tissue


Supplement

It is crucial to monitor tissue perfusion since it indicates the state of the health of a tissue. Since blood flow is involved in transporting nutrients and waste products in the body, an impaired tissue perfusion would indicate the physiologic state of the tissues. For instance, the intestines would suffer irreversible damage if there was an inadequate perfusion of even only a few hours.
