Near Infrared Spectroscopy
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Cerebral Oximetry in Newborns - Comparing INVOS 5100 and FORE-SIGHT Cerebral Oximeters Absolute Values, Sensitivity for Low Oxygen Levels and Reproducibility..|
- Cerebral oxygenation [ Time Frame: 10 minutes ]
The sensors of both instruments will be placed on each side of the head. They will be held by hand or by self-adhesive tape as appropriate.
Curve fitting will be used to describe the rapid increase of oxygenation after birth. Estimated cerebral oxygenation at 3 min (hypoxia) and 10 min (normoxia) will be used to compare the two instruments.
- Reproducibility [ Time Frame: 10 minutes ]The sensor will be placed 6 times alternating on each frontoparietal region and held by hand, obtaining 30 seconds of signal for each placement. The placements will be in the same region but not in exactly the same spot. This will be done for both devices.
