BACKGROUND The perfusion index (PI), derived from the pulse oximetry signal, has been shown to be an accurate predictor for identifying high illness severity in neonates. The plethysmographic variability index (PVI) is a measure of the dynamic change in PI occurring during a complete respiratory cycle. OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to establish the… CONTINUE READING
