Abstract: Some preterm infants have poor cerebral autoregulation. The concordance between cerebral intravascular oxygenation (HbD), computed as the difference between oxygenated (HbO(2)) and deoxygenated (Hb) haemoglobin, and mean arterial blood pressure (MABP) reflects impaired autoregulation. As HbD is not ail absolute value, we developed mathematics to prove that the cerebral tissue oxygenation (TOI), ail absolute signal computed as the ratio of HbO(2) to total haemoglobin (Hb+HbO(2)), may replace HbD. In the meantime, we attempt to theoretically predict the true level of autoregulation of a patient by defining a critical percentage or the signal recording time (CPRT). 20 preterm infants with need for intensive care were Studied in the first days of life. HbD and TOI were obtained with the NIRO-300 ((c) Hamamatsu, Japan). Invasive MABP was measured Continuously. All mathematics showed a strong similarity between HbD and TOI.
