Cerebral Tissue Oxygenation in Very Low Birthweight Infants in the First 3 Days of Life
The purpose of this study is to examine the range of cerebral tissue oxygen saturation in healthy and sick very low birthweight infants during the first 72 hours of life.
Infant, Very Low Birth Weight
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Cerebral Tissue Oxygen Saturation in Preterm Neonates Below 1500g Birth Weight During the First 72 Hours|
- Cerebral tissue oxygen saturation during first 72 hours of life [ Time Frame: during first 72 hours of life ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||April 2011|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||April 2014|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||April 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
|Very low birthweight infants|
In this observational trial we want to examine cerebral tissue oxygen saturation, total hemoglobin, fractional tissue oxygen extraction and HbD as measured by near infrared spectroscopy during the first 72h of life in very low birthweight infants.
Differences between relatively healthy and sick preterm infants will be explored. A focus is to find differences between those infants who develop germinal matrix hemorrhage and those who are at risk only but do not develop hemorrhage.
