Device lets docs stay ‘tuned in’ to brain bloodflow - Ornim - Non Invasive Brain Monitoring | Brain Blood Flow | Cerebral Blood Flow [cached]

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.
An anesthetist at London Health Sciences Centre and a researcher at LHRI, Murkin has studied cognitive and neurological outcomes in cardiac surgery for more than three decades. He said there has been an unmet clinical need for a noninvasive tool that provides accurate, real-time measurements of cerebral blood flow in these highly vulnerable patients. Currently, 11 different studies have evaluated CerOx in different applications.
"We've seen the potential of the machine and we're convinced it works," he added.
CerOx was developed by U.S.- and Israel-based Ornim Medical, of which Murkin is a member of their scientific advisory board.

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. For over 3 decades his studies have focused on cognitive and neurological outcomes in cardiac surgery with his initial series of studies of cerebral blood flow and cerebral metabolism. Dr. Murkin was the Co-Founder of the International Multidisciplinary Meeting dealing with brain injury after cardiac surgery. He is a recipient of multiple research grants from the Medical Research Council of Canada and Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation. He has authored more than one hundred twenty-five peer-reviewed papers, fifteen book chapters and one hundred thirty scientific abstracts.
