The 'Near InfraRed Spectroscopy (NIRS)' Special Interest Group
Welcome to the 'Near InfraRed Spectroscopy (NIRS)' Special Interest Group of the European Society for Paediatric Research (ESPR)
The NIRS group was initiated in 2017 during the 2nd jENS meeting in Venice. The aim of this dedicated group of experts is to produce state-of-the-art methodological and clinical guidelines/recommendations regarding the use of NIRS in neonatal care.
Our goal is to publish a series of papers that will interest both researchers and clinicians.
