The effect of prophylactic administration of ibuprofen on the cerebral circulation in preterm babies was measured with near infrared spectroscopy. No significant difference in the change in cerebral blood volume, change in cerebral blood flow, or tissue oxygenation index was found between administration of ibuprofen or placebo.
- CBV, cerebral blood volume
- Hb, reduced haemoglobin
- HbO2, oxyhaemoglobin
- HbD, cerebral intravascular oxygenation (HbO2− Hb)
- HbT, total haemoglobin
- TOI, tissue oxygenation index
- near-infrared spectroscopy
- tissue oxygenation index
- cerebral blood flow
