Peripheral Blood Flow and Oxygen Extraction in the Sick, Newborn Very Low Birth Weight Infant Shortly After Birth


This study examined the relationship between blood pressure, peripheral blood flow (PBF), and peripheral fractional oxygen extraction (FOE). Variables that may influence PBF and peripheral FOE were also measured. Measurements of PBF by near infrared spectroscopy and fractional shortening by echocardiography were made within 12 h of birth in 24 infants less… (More)
