Abstract:

Brain related injuries are a major cause of disability, death and economic cost to modern society, and are a distinguishing feature of the US military's recent conflicts. Rheoencephalography (REG) and Electroencephalography (EEG) are non-invasive, real-time measurements compatible with use in a miniaturized portable system to provide detailed information on the cerebrovascular and neurological status of a patient during evacuation from the battlefield and in the hospital during recovery. Quantum Applied Science and Research (QUASAR) has extensive experience in developing EEG and other bioelectric sensing systems for convenient, real-world use, including in battlefield settings. On Phase I of this program, QUASAR will apply its technology for no-prep dry electrode systems to develop an overall design and specifications for an REG/EEG system that will detect changes in the autoregulation of cerebral blood flow and alarm if the lower limit of autoregulation is reached. Similarly, the system will detect and alarm on failure of neuronal synaptic transmission indicating insufficient cerebral blood flow. In addition, the system will measure indications of vasospasm, and increase intracranial pressure. Phase II of the program will build the specified system, together with testing in human and animal studies.
