Causes and Treatment of Desaturation in SjO2 Monitoring
To minimize secondary brain damage, which greatly influences prognosis during brain damage, it is necessary to avoid the state of ischemia as much as possible because ischemia is an important factor in secondary brain damage. On the other hand, because ischemia has various causes, gaining an understanding of its pathology and deciding on a course of treatment is certainly not easy. In an attempt to resolve this problem, continuous monitoring of jugular bulb venous oxygen saturation (SjO2) has recently attracted considerable attention. SjO2 reflects the status of total brain oxygen metabolism because its value is determined by the ratio between cerebral blood flow and brain oxygen metabolism.
