Abstract

Aim: We used near-infrared spectrophotometry to assess the initial and final abdominal and cerebral saturations during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) of patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest to determine if there is a correlation between increase in these saturation values and return of spontaneous circulation.
