Paper Abstract

Time dependent records obtained with a cerebral oximeter are presented. Case studies include the monitoring of patients undergoing neurovascular and open heart procedures during conditions of extracorporeal circulatory support, deep hypothermia and circulatory arrest. An example of a response curve during injection of infrared tracer into the cerebral circulation is presented; recordings of desaturation periods as a result of induced hypoxia in adult volunteers are included.
