Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Cerebral tissue oxygen saturation during first 72 hours of life [ Time Frame: during first 72 hours of life ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 200
Study Start Date: April 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: April 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: April 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts
Very low birthweight infants

Detailed Description:

In this observational trial we want to examine cerebral tissue oxygen saturation, total hemoglobin, fractional tissue oxygen extraction and HbD as measured by near infrared spectroscopy during the first 72h of life in very low birthweight infants.

Differences between relatively healthy and sick preterm infants will be explored. A focus is to find differences between those infants who develop germinal matrix hemorrhage and those who are at risk only but do not develop hemorrhage.
