Inferior and Superior Vena Cava Saturation Monitoring After Neonatal Cardiac Surgery*

OBJECTIVES: Superior vena cava oxygen saturation (SVC O2) monitoring is well described for early detection of hemodynamic deterioration after neonatal cardiac surgery but inferior vena cava vein oxygen saturation (IVC O2) monitoring data are limited. DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study of 118 neonates with congenital heart disease (52 single ventricle) from February 2008 to January 2014. SETTING: Pediatric cardiac ICU. PATIENTS: Neonates (
