Cerebral Oxymetry at Elective Coronary and Valve Surgery. (Co-HLM)
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
Use of vasopressor to maintain Mean Arterial Pressure on Cardio Pulmonary Bypass can lead to decreased cerebral flow and oxygenation in individual patients and this can be detected by means of cerebral oxymetry.
