Simultaneous EEG Acquisition and Portable Near Infrared Spectroscopy for Recognition of Traumatic Brain Injury Severity and Outcome Assessments in Far-Forward Military Medical Care
Agency / Branch:
DOD / OSD
The integration of NIRS measures with EEG could be a significant advance in rapid detection and continuous monitoring of cerebral dysfunction following traumatic brain injury. We have developed a dense sensor array EEG system that can be applied rapidly in a field environment. We have developed a prototype NIRS brain imaging system that can be integrated with the EEG system, in both sparse and dense array configurations. Through both laboratory validation and extensive field testing in military and civilian medical settings, we will create an advanced brain monitoring system that is focused on rapid application and interpretation for emergency medicine.
