  Purpose
Preterm infants often need peripheral artery catheters for invasive blood pressure recording and to facilitate blood sampling. Near infrared spectroscopy is a method to evaluate cerebral oxygenation and as well as cerebral blood flow. Sampling procedures with identical sampling volumes are performed at a short (40 seconds) and a long (70 seconds) time intervall while changes of cerebral oxygenation are measured. The investigators hypothesise that slower sampling decrease changes in cerebral blood flow.

Condition
Cerebral Oxygenation Cerebral Blood Flow Prematurity
