Abstract
The objective of the proposed program is the development of a mobile and non-invasive cerebro-physiological monitor that will permit the tracking of cerebral functions and the identification of developing pathologic brain conditions in wounded soldiers during transport and under medical care in forward areas. Specifically, the purpose of the system will be to continuously track cerebral blood flow and perfusion by monitoring the state of autoregulation as well as by monitoring an EEG signal as a further detection mechanism for declining brain function. ETC proposes to enhance the capabilities of its existing mobile physiological monitoring platform, the CareTaker, to include the required brain monitoring functions. Beyond significant on-board computing power, data storage capability, and the ability to interface with other sensor systems, CareTaker provides the enabling physiological variable that is required to assess the state of CBF autoregulation, blood pressure, in a compact and highly mobile package.
