Neurosurgical Intensive Care Unit Research Group
Brain injury is a significant health burden because it causes death and severe disability, often in young people. Current techniques for monitoring the injured brain have disadvantages. We have developed and tested a comprehensive range of innovative, non-invasive optical monitors which measure regional changes in metabolic as well as oxygenation and haemodynamic variables as indicators of cerebral ischaemic damage following brain injury. In association with other components of the multi-modal array, these techniques offer the possibility to identify windows for targeted therapy after brain injury, thereby potentially reducing the risk of secondary brain damage. This might improve outcome in survivors and reduce the length of stay in neurointensive care, which is a costly and scarce resource in the UK. The Neurosurgical Intensive Care Unit Research Group is a multidisciplinary group comprising neurointensivists, medical physicists, bioengineers and a mathematical modeller from the Departments of Neurosurgical Critical Care at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, UCLH and Medical Physics and Bioengineering, UCL.
