Added level to hemodynamic monitoring

Maintaining adequate cerebral perfusion during surgery is imperative to preventing cerebral ischemia and other risks associated with cerebral desaturation. Several studies have cited that the occurrence of cerebral desaturation suggests the need for perioperative cerebral perfusion monitoring.([FOOTNOTE=],[ANCHOR=View Article],[LINK=http://www2.snacc.org/aotm/aotm_feb2015.pdf])

To provide an example, for patients in the beach chair position during shoulder surgery, ventilation strategy positively influences cerebral perfusion regardless of anesthetic technique.2 Cerebral oximetry provides additional information along with noninvasive blood pressure and mean arterial pressure to provide a more accurate estimate of cerebral desaturation.

The INVOS™ system provides a continuous non-invasive measurement of cerebral oxygen saturation and a reliable indication of changes in cerebral perfusion. The INVOS™ system provides real-time monitoring of changes in regional oxygen saturation (rSO2) of blood in the brain or other body tissues beneath the sensor for effective oxygen monitoring in patients.([FOOTNOTE=Cerebral/Somatic Oximetry Product Page],[ANCHOR=View Page],[LINK=https://www.medtronic.com/covidien/en-us/products/cerebral-somatic-oximetry.html])
