Abstract

The use of near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) to measure cerebral tissue oxygen saturation may prove to be a valuable instrument in the medical management of preterm infants with regard to oxygenation therapy. Normal cerebral tissue oxygen saturation is not well established for preterm neonates and medical management often requires a delicate balance of oxygen saturation and respiratory support to avoid hypoxia and hyperoxia and their associated long-term disease burden. Using NIRS collected data, we have established normal ranges of cerebral tissue oxygen saturation under various hemodynamic conditions that may provide a better understanding of cerebral tissue oxygenation. A better understanding of cerebral tissue oxygenation may lead to better clinical management and health outcomes of in preterm neonates.
