Abstract

Near-infrared spectroscopy is a relatively new technology used to assess tissue oxygenation and haemodynamics by measuring the differential absorption of infrared light as it passes through tissue. For such monitoring to achieve clinical value, disease states must be defined in which the adequacy of cerebral oxygenation cannot be easily predicted; non-invasive measurements must be validated in a variety of physiological and pathological circumstances; and convincing evidence must be acquired to demonstrate that interventions based upon the non-invasive monitor can improve outcome.
