Paper Abstract

The value of cerebral oxygenation saturation is important for optimal treatment and prognosis in neonates during perinatal period. The purpose of this study was to investigate the cerebral oxygen in newborn infants and obtain clinical characteristic parameters by using steady state spatially resolved near infrared spectroscopy. The subjects consist of 239 infants selected from two hospital. The results show that the values of regional cerebral oxygen saturation (rSO2) for preterm infants with gestational ages of 27 - 32 weeks were different from term infants and the value of rSO2 for sick term infants after treatment were better than that of before treatment. Above results suggest that the value of rSO2 may be used as a clinical parameter to assess cerebral oxygen for preterm and sick infants avoiding hypoxia.
