Cerebral oximeter is a noninvasive device which provides continuous monitoring of the regional cerebral saturation using near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS). After gaining popularity as an intraoperative monitoring tool, use of NIRS monitoring has also expanded to postoperative period of congenital heart diseases now. Shunt underflow is a known complication after Blalock–Taussig (BT) shunt, which is conventionally detected by a drop in oxygen saturation and metabolic acidosis. We report a case where cerebral regional saturation monitoring by NIRS helped in early detection of low pulmonary flow state during postoperative period of neonatal BT shunt. We observed that the drop in regional cerebral oxygen saturation preceded fall in peripheral oxygen saturation during shunt underflow.
