Abstract

It is very important for to evaluate cerebral blood flow and cerebral oxygen metabolism of patients who are suffering from severe head injury or severe cerebrovascular disease. It is well known that jugular bulb saturation shows the ratio of cerebral blood flow and cerebral oxygen metabolism. Thus, many trials were carried out to measure jugular bulb saturation to determine cerebral blood flow and cerebral oxygen metabolism. It has been very difficult, however, to measure and record these parameters continuously at bedside. Recent technology now makes it possible to measure and record these parameters at a bedside monitor.
