Ischemia is a known complication that can occur during and after several surgical procedures. In cases of ischemia in an organ or a mass of tissue, timely detection is important if intervention is to be performed in due time. A number of invasive and non-invasive devices have been used for the detection of ischemia. So far, no single monitoring method fulfills all the demands of clinical practice. The method must be harmless to the patient, rapid responsive, accurate, reliable, and easy to use for the hospital staff. Furthermore, it needs to have a high specificity and sensitivity. There does not seem to be any consensus in terms of which method to use in clinical practice.
