Cerebral autoregulation controls cerebral blood flow under changing cerebral perfusion pressure. Standards for measurement and analysis of dynamic cerebral autoregulation (dCA) are lacking. In this study, dCA reproducibility, quantified by intraclass correlation coefficient, is evaluated for different methodological approaches of transfer function analysis(More)
Despite increased risk of neurological complications after cardiac surgery, monitoring of cerebral hemodynamics during cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) is still not a common practice. Therefore, a technique to evaluate dynamic cerebral autoregulation and cerebral carbon dioxide reactivity (CO2R) during normothermic nonpulsatile CPB is presented. The technique(More)
On Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU) many vital parameters are recorded but monitoring of brain function by Electroencephalography (EEG) is rare, mainly because signal interpretation requires expert visual inspection. In 1-6 % of newborns on the NICU (sub clinical) seizures occur and even more frequent in prematures and low-birth weight children [1].(More)
