Non-invasive tissue oximetry is a monitoring method for continuous assessment of tissue oxygenation, which may aid in detection of hemodynamic instability and otherwise unnoticed hypoxia. Numerous studies focused on using non-invasive tissue oximetry intraoperatively, proposing its predictive value in relation to clinical outcome. Tissue oximetry may be part of standard monitoring practice for brain monitoring during cardiac surgery in many clinical centers; however, the monitoring method can be deployed in numerous clinical settings. This succinct overview aims to determine the role of non-invasive tissue oximetry in current clinical practice.
