Introduction: Hemodynamic instability is most commonly seen among critically ill patients in Intensive care units and it is essential to detect circulatory changes. As peripheral tissues are sensitive to alterations in perfusion, the non-invasive monitoring of peripheral circulation could be used as an early marker of systemic hemodynamic derangement. Hence, the current study was conducted to associate the peripheral perfusion status with the prognostic significance among mechanically ventilated patients. Methodology: A Descriptive research design was conducted in Intensive care unit at Saveetha Medical College and Hospital with 60 samples selected using Convenience sampling technique who matched inclusion criteria. Results: The study results had shown that, Prognosis had a significant association between level of peripheral perfusion among mechanical ventilated patients at p
