Perioperative neonatal methemoglobinemia and transcutaneous oxygen monitoring

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

1 Scopus citations


Two premature neonates who suffered severe perioperative methemoglobinemia are reported. Simultaneous transcutaneous oxygen monitoring revealed adequate blood oxygen tension. Continuous transcutaneous monitoring may give a false sense of security by reflecting normal blood oxygen tension in the absence of adequate oxygen unloading capacity.
