BACKGROUND We investigated the changes occurring in cerebral cortical oxygenation during off-pump coronary artery bypass (OPCAB) surgery using near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS). METHODS Measurement of cerebral cortical oxygenation changes included concentration of deoxygenated hemoglobin [HHb], oxygenated hemoglobin [O(2)Hb], changes in the redox status of the cytochrome c oxidase [Cyt-Ox], cerebral saturation as expressed by the tissue oxygenation index (TOI), and cerebral blood volume (CBV… CONTINUE READING
