The Clinical Utility of Quantifying Cerebral Blood Flow
Sponsored by: Hemedex
Date: 27 February
Time: 3PM London/10AM New York
Features and Benefits of using the Bowman Perfusion Monitor in Neurocritical Care and Neurosurgery
Many neurocritical care patients needlessly suffer severe complications or death resulting from undetected ischemia. There is a need to continuously measure cerebral blood flow in absolute units, at the bedside. The Bowman Perfusion Monitor is the only medical device that meets this need.
This webinar will address:
- The clinical utility of monitoring cerebral blood flow (CBF) and its use in clinical decision making:
- Real-time detection of critical levels of flow using thresholds
- Assess state of cerebral autoregulation
- Differentiate vasospasam and hyperemia during elevated TCD measurements
- Assess the effects of interventions on CBF
- Provides information when used may reduce risk of neurological complications
- CBF as a predictor of patient outcomes
- Role of CBF monitoring in Multi-Modal Monitoring
- The features and benefits of using the Bowman Perfusion Monitor
- Neurocritical care applications: SAH, TBI, ICH
- Neurosurgical applications: Aneurysm repair(TAO), EC/IC Bypass, MoyaMoya surgery
- Potential Economic savings by incorporating the BPM in your clinical practice
This webinar is aimed at clinicians who manage and care for patients with injuries resulting in compromised blood flow and would like to learn about real-time, absolute measurements of cerebral blood flow.
