Brain oxygen measurement guides carotid surgery:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Somanetics' INVOS cerebral oximeter could be better than the gold standard method for monitoring patients undergoing carotid surgery, researchers from the University of Chicago have reported. The monitor, which is cleared by the FDA, could be used as an adjunct to, or instead of an EEG (electroencephalogram) during endarterectomy, said lead researcher Dr James McKinsey. Troy, Michigan-based Somanetics' INVOS could be easier to use and less expensive than EEG, he said.
