BACKGROUND Near-infrared spectroscopy is a potential tool for measuring adequacy of cerebral oxygenation during cardiac operations. The cerebral microcirculation is predominantly venous (by volume) and therefore regional cerebral oxygenation measured by near-infrared spectroscopy should reflect jugular bulb venous saturations. METHODS We compared simultaneous regional cerebral oxygenation and jugular bulb venous saturation measurements in 40 children (median age, 4.5 years; range 2 weeks to… CONTINUE READING
