Brief Summary:
This study will examine the relationship of oxygen levels, using NIRS monitoring, and kidney injury in infants born prematurely. NIRS is a skin sensor which detects the amount of oxygen going to different organs, most often used to monitor the brain and kidney.

Layout table for study information
Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 30 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Official Title: Use of NIRS to Detect Acute Kidney Injury in Preterm Infants
Actual Study Start Date : April 25, 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date : September 1, 2019
Estimated Study Completion Date : September 1, 2019

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: NIRS monitoring
These infants will be monitored with NIRS
Device: Near Infrared Spectroscopy
Application of regional NIRS sensors to brain and kidney sites in the first 48 hours after birth to monitor regional tissue oxygenation for the first 7 days of age.
Other Name: NIRS

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Renal NIRS tissue oxygenation differential [ Time Frame: Days 1-7 of age ]
    Comparison of Renal saturation (Rsat) in patients with AKI to those without AKI.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Correlation of renal NIRS values to serum creatinine and urine output [ Time Frame: Days 1-7 of age ]
    In patients with AKI, renal NIRS values (Rsat) will be correlated with changes in serum creatinine and urine output.

  2. Effect of neonatal medications on renal NIRS values [ Time Frame: Days 1-7 of age ]
    Renal saturation values following administration of neonatal medications will be compared to mean renal saturation values for each specific patient.
