Neurological complications during critical illness remain a frequent cause of morbidity and mortality. To date, monitors of cerebral function including electroencephalography, jugular bulb mixed venous oxygen saturation and transcranial Doppler, either require an invasive procedure and/or are not sensitive enough to effectively identify patients at risk for cerebral hypoxia. Near-infrared spectroscopy is a noninvasive device that uses infrared light, a technique similar to pulse oximetry, to… CONTINUE READING
