Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) is an emerging technique for brain oxygenation monitoring in newborns complicated by acute and chronic hypoxia. However, data regarding cerebral oxygenation normal values are still lacking and matter of debate. Therefore, we investigate whether NIRS parameters in healthy preterm/term infants are gestational age and delivery modalities dependent and correlate with standard monitoring parameters. From January to December 2007, 100 healthy newborns with… CONTINUE READING
