Infant polysomnography recording procedures 33 RECORDING ENVIRONMENT The laboratory should consist of two adjacent rooms, one for the sleeping infant and one for the equipment.

Two wavelengths of light are used in an effort to circumvent this problem. If one looks at the optical spectra of oxygenated and deoxygenated hemoglobin, it is found that there are big differences in the visible red portion of the spectrum but the actual characteristics cross one another in the nearinfrared portion of the spectrum. By using two light sources and having one of them in the visible red portion of the spectrum and the other near the wavelength where the characteristics cross in the near-infrared portion of the spectrum, it is possible to normalize the changes in red coloration of the transilluminated tissue to the relative amount of blood in that tissue.

Another type of sensor that is used for measuring reflux of gastric acid into the esophagus is a miniature glass pH electrode21. Larger versions of this sensor are routinely used in chemistry laboratories to determine the pH of a solution. Miniature sensors, 2–4 mm in diameter are available as combination electrodes; that is, they contain both the glass electrode and a reference electrode placed at the end of a flexible cable. This sensor can be advanced into the esophagus or swallowed just as the antimony/antimony oxide electrode, and it will produce an electrical voltage that is related to the pH of the medium in the vicinity of the sensor.
