The goal of this observational study is to determine the feasibility of renal Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) monitoring in the newborn nursery for newborns at low risk of coarctation of the aorta (CoA). The main questions it aims to answer are:
whether continuous renal NIRS monitoring is feasible;
whether NIRS monitoring results in higher nursing and parent/caregiver satisfaction than current standard monitoring; and,
whether participants who develop CoA will spend a smaller proportion of time within the normal range than patients who do not have CoA.
Participants will be observed through continuous renal oxygenation monitoring with NIRS.
