In 19 piglets, near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) was used to monitor the regional cerebral oxygen saturation (rSO2) during infrarenal aortic cross-clamping in a piglet model. Infrarenal aortic cross-clamping significantly decreased the rSO2. This observation indicates that NIRS has the advantages of being noninvasive and continuous.
