Regional tissue oxygenation in association with duration of hypoxaemia and haemodynamic variability in preterm neonates

Regional tissue oxygenation in association with duration of hypoxaemia and haemodynamic variability in preterm neonates

Archives of Disease in Childhood. Fetal and Neonatal Edition 95(3): F213-F219

To assess the effect of the duration of spontaneous hypoxic episodes and variations in haemodynamic parameters on cerebral and renal tissue oxygenation (rSo(2)C and rSo(2)R) in clinically stable preterm infants. Observational study. Neonatal intensive care unit of a university-affiliated children's hospital. Patients rSo(2)C and rSo(2)R and haemodynamic parameters were recorded for 2-3 h (once or twice) in clinically stable preterm neonates (n=10) using near-infrared spectroscopy, GE DASH 4000 and Bedmaster Software. rSo(2)C and rSo(2)R and fractional oxygen extraction (cerebral and renal fractional oxygen extraction: FOE-C and FOE-R, respectively) in association with the duration of pulse oximetry desaturation (pulse oximetry saturations (Sao(2)) < or =84%), bradycardia (heart rate < or =90 beats/min) and hypotension (mean blood pressure (MBP) <30 mm Hg). Among the 14 sets of recorded measurements, 128 hypoxic episodes with 5-10 (n=41), 15-20 (n=26), 25-30 (n=78), 35-40 (n=14), 45-50 (n=25) and > or =55 s (n=16) duration were identified. Prolongation of hypoxic episodes for more than 30 s was associated with major reductions in Sao(2), rSo(2)C and rSo(2)R without any significant changes in the regional FOE. Bradycardia occurred during 43.8% of hypoxaemic episodes of > or =55 s duration (p<0.01) and impacted the severity of the tissue deoxygenation. Decreased rSo(2)R and increased FOE-R were observed in association with mild hypotension irrespective of the systemic oxygenation status. Prolongation of hypoxaemia contributes to the severity of the deoxygenation (systemic and regional) and development of bradycardia. In stable preterm neonates, mild decreases in MBP independently affect the renal but not cerebral tissue oxygenation and oxygen utilisation.
