Abstract: Objective: The aim of the present study was to evaluate baseline regional cerebral oxygen saturation (rSO2) values and identify factors influencing preoperative rSO2 in elective minor surgery. Patients and methods: Observational post-hoc analysis of data for the patient sample (n=50) of a previously conducted clinical trial in patients undergoing tumourectomy for breast cancer or inguinal hernia repair. Exclusion criteria included pre-existing cerebrovascular diseases, anaemia, baseline pulse oximetry <97% and low quality rSO2 sensor signals. Demographic data, comorbidities, and ASA physical status as well as height and weight were collected prospectively from all patients. Baseline rSO2 values were recorded while the patient breathed room air, using the INVOS 5100C monitor™ (Covidien, Dublin, Ireland). Results: Thirty-seven women (72%) and 13 men (28%) 48±13 years of age were enrolled in this study. Baseline rSO2 was 62.01±10.38%. Baseline rSO2 was significantly different between men (67.6±11.2%) and women (60±9.4%), (P=0.023). There were also differences between baseline rSO2 and ASA physical status (ASA I: 67.6±10.7%, ASA II: 61.6±8.4%, ASA III: 55.8±13.9%, P=0.045). Baseline rSO2 had a positive correlation with body weight (r=0.347, P=0.014) and height (r=0.345, P=0.014). We also found significant differences in baseline rSO2 among patients with and without chronic renal failure (P=0.005). No differences were found in any other studied variables. Conclusions: Non-modifiable patient characteristics (ASA physical status, sex, chronic renal failure, body weight and height) influence baseline rSO2.
