Neuro-Ox 2018: Assessment of Cerebral Oxygenation Under Three Clinically Relevant Conditions

2018-09-28 06:43:12 | BioPortfolio


This is a prospective observational study, consisting of 3 substudies carried out during elective neurosurgery under general anaesthesia. Each participant will take part in all 3 substudies. First, the capability of Near Infra Red Spectroscopy (NIRS) to measure the brain oxygenation is examined. A NIRS-electrode is placed on forehead skin, on the skull, and on dura. Secondly, a small dose of Phenylephrine is given, and the brain oxygenation is measured by a Clark-electrode and a NIRS-electrode, to see how Phenylephrine affects these measurements. In the third substudy, the brain oxygenations' (NIRS and Licox) response to an inspired oxygen fraction of 0.30 vs. 0.80 is investigated.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A skull fracture characterized by inward depression of a fragment or section of cranial bone, often compressing the underlying dura mater and brain. Depressed cranial fractures which feature open skin wounds that communicate with skull fragments are referred to as compound depressed skull fractures.

Accumulation of blood in the EPIDURAL SPACE between the SKULL and the DURA MATER, often as a result of bleeding from the MENINGEAL ARTERIES associated with a temporal or parietal bone fracture. Epidural hematoma tends to expand rapidly, compressing the dura and underlying brain. Clinical features may include HEADACHE; VOMITING; HEMIPARESIS; and impaired mental function.

Traumatic injuries to the cranium where the integrity of the skull is not compromised and no bone fragments or other objects penetrate the skull and dura mater. This frequently results in mechanical injury being transmitted to intracranial structures which may produce traumatic brain injuries, hemorrhage, or cranial nerve injury. (From Rowland, Merritt's Textbook of Neurology, 9th ed, p417)

The part of CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM that is contained within the skull (CRANIUM). Arising from the NEURAL TUBE, the embryonic brain is comprised of three major parts including PROSENCEPHALON (the forebrain); MESENCEPHALON (the midbrain); and RHOMBENCEPHALON (the hindbrain). The developed brain consists of CEREBRUM; CEREBELLUM; and other structures in the BRAIN STEM.

Fractures of the skull which may result from penetrating or nonpenetrating head injuries or rarely BONE DISEASES (see also FRACTURES, SPONTANEOUS). Skull fractures may be classified by location (e.g., SKULL FRACTURE, BASILAR), radiographic appearance (e.g., linear), or based upon cranial integrity (e.g., SKULL FRACTURE, DEPRESSED).
