Relative changes in cerebral blood volume and in the oxidation/reduction state of cytochrome aa3, the terminal member of the electron transport chain in oxidative metabolism, can be simultaneously observed with near infrared spectroscopy. Using this technique, we studied movement-associated blood pressure elevations in three nonparalyzed very low birth weight infants receiving mechanical ventilation. We defined hypertensive peaks as increases in systolic and diastolic blood pressures greater… CONTINUE READING
