  journal={Intensive Care Medicine},
Measurement of the saturation of brain effluent blood gives a global estimate of cerebral oxygenation. It may provide clinicians with information to assist in reducing secondary insults to the brain with potential benefits to a range of patients with actual or potential acute brain injury such as trauma and cardiac bypass procedures. The technology to continuously measure this variable is simple to use but requires attention to detail; it is limited in its ability to detect discrete regions of… CONTINUE READING
