and through closed eyes
Head injury & stroke are the leading causes of death & disability worldwide. It has a large economic cost on society, including direct and indirect medical costs.
The primary goal in the management of brain injured patients in the ICU is to prevent a secondary insult to the brain.
Early detection of neurological deterioration in patients with brain injury is a key point for improved outcomes & recovery.
Pupillary light reflex examination is an important, non-invasive diagnostic tool for neurological assessment in critical care units.
Pupillary examination provides valuable information in the assessment of brain damage. It has a strong correlation to increased Intracranial pressure.
Current standard of care pupillary assessment is done manually & intermittently by the nursing staff, using a penlight and a ruler.
Critical care patients with severe brain injury, sedated and ventilated or in a comatose state, require constant pupillary examination to monitor any changes in their neurological condition.
Real time, continuous & automatic pupil reflex monitoring for assessing neurological status of unconscious patients in:
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
- Brain Surgery
Brainwatch is developing the first real-time, automated, pupil imaging system through closed eyes.
