Cerebral Oxygenation Monitoring using Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS)

Section: Miscellaneous
Effective Date: July 01, 2019
Last Reviewed: May 15, 2019

Description

Cerebral oxygenation monitoring utilizes near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) a non-invasive technology capable of continuously obtaining data related to cerebral blood flow and specifically hemoglobin oxygen saturation. This data is used to estimate the oxygen O2 saturation of the cerebral tissue. 

Criteria

Cerebral Oxygenation Monitoring using Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) is considered experimental/investigational, as published data are inadequate to prove the safety and efficacy of this procedure.
