Prediction of Favourable Outcome After Cardiac Arrest

2023 24 May

Hypoxic-ischaemic brain injury following cardiac arrest (CA) is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Withdrawal of life-sustaining therapy (WLST) is a common cause of death in these cases. Prognostication plays a crucial role. Current guidelines, such as those from ESICM,  propose a multimodal approach combining clinical examination,... Read more

Is There an Alternative to Costly Tech For Future Healthcare?

2020 29 Jan

Summary: An HIT expert gives his view on how healthcare can be revamped by harnessing technology for existing care modalities rather than overhauling the entire system. I think the next few years will be characterised by a much better exploitation of systems that are used routinely in the care system. My impression is that we have a lot of... Read more

Detecting Consciousness in Patients with Severe TBI

2017 25 Jul

Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and electroencephalography (EEG) can be used to identify ICU patients with severe traumatic brain injuries who have a level of consciousness not revealed by the standard bedside neurological examination. Early detection of consciousness and brain function in the intensive care unit could alter time-sensitive... Read more

Quantitative EEG in ICU: Useful and Feasible

2017 16 Mar

EEG measures continuously at the bedside the human brain’s electrical activity. Its main advantages are noninvasiveness, good spatial and temporal resolution, and sensitivity to changes in both brain structure and function.   In ICU, seizures are frequent in patients with/without acute brain injury. They are often difficult to recognise, because... Read more

Prototype Helmet Device Uses EEG to Detect TBI Early

2016 21 May

A portable system to detect traumatic brain injury (TBI) has been developed in Norway. The helmet-based system can run EEG tests at the scene of an accident or in an ambulance, and has been patented by Smartbrain. Haldor Sjåheim at Smartbrain explained that the EmerEEG system allows fast EEGs to be run. "The diagnostics and outcomes for many patient... Read more

Anaesthesia: Brain Effects Differ in Old and Young Patients

2015 17 Aug

In a series of studies, Massachusetts General Hospital's researchers have observed the differences in the way common anaesthetics affect the brains of older patients and children — findings that could lead to ways of improving monitoring technology and the safety of general anaesthesia for such patients. Emery Brown, MD, PhD, and Patrick Purdon, PhD,... Read more
