25 Clinical Abstracts at National Conference Spotlight Clinical Utility of Somanetics INVOS System in Neonates

"Many ongoing studies are exploring patterns in regional oxygen values to evaluate whether they may be indicative of disease states that often cannot be identified until the condition escalates and causes damage."

One disease elusive to detect is necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), a dying off of the intestinal and bowel tissue that often leads to death. It often arises unexpectedly due to unknown causes, and typically does not exhibit definitive signs until damage has already been done. Treatment in the NICU can span months, adding financial burden to an already emotionally devastated family.

"While useful to combat NEC, cessation of feed
