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.
||Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
||A Comparison of Cerebral Tissue Oxygenation Values in Newborns Measured Simultaneously Using Laser and LED NIRS Oximeters
Primary Outcome Measures:
- 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 ]
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.

||up to 1 Day (Child)
|Sexes Eligible for Study:
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
Clinically stable, spontaneously breathing newborns will be included in the study. Enrolled patients will be divided into two groups: 15 term (≥37 weeks GA) and 15 preterm (32-37 weeks GA) newborns. NIRS measurements will be performed on the 1st and 3rd day of life.
- Clinically stable
- Spontaneously breathing newborns
- Congenital heart defects or anomalies of central nervous system
- Prematurity below 32 GA
- Respiratory distress
