Pilot study in neonatal and pediatric oesophageal pulse oximetry

Kyriacou, P. A., Jones, D. P., Langford, R. M. & Petros, A. J. (2007). Pilot study in neonatal and pediatric oesophageal pulse oximetry. Anesthesia and Analgesia, 105(6), S106-S107. doi: 10.1213/01.ane.0000290771.60068.d5


The primary objective of this proof-of-concept pilot study was to investigate the feasibility of detecting photoplethysmographic(PPG) signals and estimating blood oxygen saturation (Spo2) values from the esophagus of children and neonates. This vital measurement can be impossible to obtain at times when it is most needed during septic shock, circulatory collapse, or cardiac arrest.
