OBJECTIVE Microcirculatory visualization has already been used to investigate buccal and cutaneous microcirculatory alterations in neonates. Still, the reproducibility of these microvascular measurements has never been studied in (premature) neonates. This study aimed to determine the reproducibility of microvascular vessel density in cutaneous and buccal SDF clips in one-day-old term newborns. METHODS Buccal and cutaneous microcirculations were measured using SDF imaging. Vessel density was… CONTINUE READING
