In the intensive care of sick infants, the global oxygen reserve capacity is estimated by co-oximetry (co-ox) of blood sampled from central venous catheters. Introduction of a noninvasive alternative is desirable. Near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) offers a technique for noninvasive bedside monitoring of tissue oxygen economy. We studied the relation between peripheral venous oxyhemoglobin saturation (SvO(2)) estimated by venous occlusion and NIRS, and the central SvO(2) measured by co-ox of… CONTINUE READING
