Cerebral Tissue Oxygenation Values in Newborns Measured Using Laser and LED NIRS Oximeters
The aim of the study is to compare the values of cerebral tissue oxygenation measured simultaneously using laser light (FORE-SIGHT) and LED (INVOS) cerebral oximeters.
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||A Comparison of Cerebral Tissue Oxygenation Values in Newborns Measured Simultaneously Using Laser and LED NIRS Oximeters|
- Comparison of variability and repeatability of the recorded cerebral tissue oxygenation signals between two groups of patients (clinical stable preterm and term newborns) [ Time Frame: 6 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
There are two FDA-approved near infrared cerebral oximeters:
- FORE-SIGHT- which uses laser light
- INVOS 5100- which uses light emmiting diode.
Measurements in adult patients have showed that FORE-SIGHT provides more stable signal. Purpose of our study is to compare these two devices in newborn patients.
