The best noninvasive way to gauge tissue perfusion in patients with sepsis is to measure:

a. systolic blood pressure.

b. diastolic blood pressure.

c. mean arterial blood pressure.

d. right-arm blood pressure

Correct answer: c. Mean arterial pressure is a more accurate way to gauge tissue perfusion than blood pressure. Blood pressure readings can be somewhat deceiving as the body goes through the compensatory process.
