Abstract

Objectives: To investigate the correlation between cerebral near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) (rSO2c) and superior vena cava venous oxygen saturation (ScvO2) in newborn patients with congenital heart disease (CHD). Background: NIRS is a noninvasive method to monitor hemoglobin oxygen saturation using nonpulsatile oximetry. Methods: We retrospectively analyzed perioperative data from 100 newborn patients who underwent cardiac surgery for CHD. rSO2c, ScvO2 from 24 h before to 72 h after surgery were recorded. Results: rSO2c had a fair correlation with ScvO2 (r 0.37; P
