Intraoperative Monitoring of Jugular Venous Oxygen Saturation in Patients with Severe Head Injury
Recent studies have suggested that secondary insults occuring during the early hospitalization period and resulting in hypoxia/ischemia of the brain may significantly contribute to a poor outcome [1, 2, 3]. The continuous monitoring of jugular venous oxygen saturation (SjVO2) has been shown to be useful in the identification of causes and in early treatment of jugular venous oxygen desaturation episodes [2, 4].
