Extract

In the climactic scene from the adventure film Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, the protagonist must choose, from a number of bedazzling chalices, the Holy Grail of Arthurian legend. The knight whose destiny is to guard the grail cautions Jones to “choose wisely,” and Jones rightly ignores the fanciful alternatives and chooses the cup of a laborer, simple and practically suited to its task. Challenged to find one of the “holy grails” of medicine, that is, a simplified technique that can detect early tissue hypoperfusion during circulatory shock, Povoas and colleagues, in this issue of CHEST (see page 1127), may have approached one step closer to the goal with the technique of sublingual capnometry.
