This video abstract provides an overview of our case report which describes events surround an extremely low birthweight infant who developed pneumoperitoneum after receiving two full-volume red blood cell transfusions. Specifically, we outline the raw mesenteric oxygenation patterns measured by near-infrared spectroscopy technology, and how these values provided physiologic information of intestinal hypoperfusion that routine physiologic data did not capture.
