Cerebral Oximeter Comparison Study

This study has been completed.

First received: May 17, 2011
Last updated: August 1, 2012
Last verified: July 2012
In this prospective study to try to standardize the care for patients, the investigators are planning to compare two cerebral oximeters currently in use at NCH in terms of their accuracy in determining the cerebral oxygen saturation as determined by jugular bulb oxygen saturation. Also, the investigators will compare these devices in terms of their response to changes in hemodynamics that occur during cardiac surgery.

Condition Intervention
Cardiac Bypass Patients
Device: Somanetics cerebral oximeter
Device: CASMED cerebral oximeter

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Comparison of the FORE-SITE and INVOS Cerebral Oximeters During Cardiac Surgery

Further study details as provided by Nationwide Children's Hospital:

Primary Outcome Measures:
