• Understand the basics of near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) and its effective use and interpretation to monitor cerebral oximetry in the orthopedic OR environment
  • Discuss the unique challenges and risks of cerebral desaturation faced by patients undergoing shoulder procedures
  • Discuss existing literature and society guidelines to examine the clinical values of monitoring cerebral oximetry with NIRS technology

Does monitoring cerebral oximetry have implications for non-cardiac OR patients? In this webinar, Dr. Jeffrey Green will discuss the clinical value of monitoring cerebral oximetry with near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) for your shoulder patients. Beach chair positioning for shoulder surgery is associated with measurable cerebral desaturation events (CDEs) in up to 80% of patients.1 Dr. Green will discuss how NIRS technology allows real-time measurement of cerebral oxygenation and may minimize the frequency of CDEs for your patients who undergo shoulder procedures.
