Paper Abstract

Organ protection and physiology optimization are important goals when taking care of anesthetized patients undergoing surgery. Postoperative cognitive dysfunction and perioperative stroke are unwarranted potential outcomes. Neurovascular coupling, the match between cerebral metabolic demand and substrate supply, should be regarded as the essential cerebral physiology which needs to be monitored during surgery. The brain-targeting near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) technology has the potential to fulfill this goal. Proposition of why and how to monitor essential cerebral physiology via advanced NIRS technologies is discussed. We also discussed the limits of the current NIRS technologies which merely measure cerebral tissue oxygen saturation in pooled cerebral arterial, capillary, and venous blood.
