Synopsis: 
Cerebral oximeter is a promising modality in bedside monitoring in neonatal intensive care units. It is complementary to pulse oximeter and may be used routinely in neonatal intensive care units.

ABSTRACT

Aim: The monitoring of oxygenation is essential for providing patient safety and optimal results. We aimed to determine brain oxygen saturation values in healthy, asphyctic and premature newborns and to compare cerebral oximeter and pulse oximeter values in the first 72 hours of life in neonatal intensive care units.

The Impact of the Establishment of a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit on the Outcome of Very Low Birthweight Infants at the University Hospital of the West Indies

Issue: 
Pages: 
297–301
Synopsis: 
The establishment of a neonatal intensive care unit has resulted in improved survival of very low birthweight infants. Further improvement in survival of these infants will be dependent on increased accessibility to surfactant therapy, initiation of total parenteral nutrition and the availability of trained personnel.
