Device lets docs stay â€˜tuned inâ€™ to brain bloodflow - Ornim - Non Invasive Brain Monitoring | Brain Blood Flow | Cerebral Blood Flow
For Dr. John Murkin, the medical device business is all about "making a better mouse trap." The Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry professor is part of a team of Western and Lawson Health Research Institute (LHRI) researchers studying a new technology that may change the way patients undergoing cardiac surgery are monitored and managed in the hospital.The device, known as CerOx, non-invasively monitors cerebral blood flow and helps physicians and nurses assess brain perfusion in real time. Murkin, who has been involved in the machine's development, said this information could be used to support critical treatment decisions made to protect the patient from potential complications. "We use near-infrared light routinely in all hospitals to measure oxygen saturation in the brain. That's been out for 30 years," Murkin said.

Dr. Murkin's recent ongoing peer-funded investigations focus on the role of Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) for assessment of cerebral oxygenation as well as novel investigations on the impact of early sepsis on NIRS-detected microcirculatory vasoreactivity and tissue oxygenation.
