The paper presents innovative methods and technology for non-invasive intracranial hemodynamics monitoring based on the measurement of brain parenchyma acoustic properties. The clinical investigation of new technology shows the similarity between the invasively recorded intracranial pressure (ICP) and non-invasively recorded intracranial blood volume (IBV)(More)
The objectives are to investigate the peculiarities of the ultrasound pulse propagation through human extra/intracranial media by mathematical simulation and to confirm the simulation results experimentally by proving the suitability of the ultrasonic time-of-flight measurement method for human intracranial media (IM) physiological non-invasive monitoring.(More)
Ultrasonic "time-of-flight" monitor (Vittamed) was used for continuous monitoring of intracranial blood volume (IBV) pulse, respiratory, slow waves and cerebrovascular autoregulation (CA). The objectives are to compare of invasively and non-invasively monitored slow intracranial waves and CA of ICU patients and to evaluate the phase shift between ABP and(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to explore the association of cerebrovascular autoregulation (CA) and optimal cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP) managing conditions with the outcome of traumatic brain injury (TBI) patients including additional information about the patients' age and grade of diffuse axonal injury (DAI). MATERIALS AND(More)
The innovative non-invasive intracranial volume wave monitor has been developed in Telematics Scientific Laboratory of Kaunas University of Technology (Lithuania). It is based on the measurement of the human brain parenchyma acoustic properties (ultrasound speed and attenuation) using time-of-flight technique [1,2] and it is capable of measuring different(More)
Non-invasive physiological monitors are important subsystems of intensive care informatic systems. New innovative information methods and technology are presented for non-invasive human brain volumetric pulse wave physiological monitoring. Experimental study of a new, non-invasive ultrasonic intracranial pulse wave monitoring technology show the reactions(More)
BACKGROUND The ability to quantify non-invasively the effect of posture on intracranial physiology by using cine phase-contrast MRI may lead to the development of new diagnostic tests to evaluate such functions as regulation of CBF and ICP, and the effect of pathologies on these functions. METHODS Results similar to MRI technology can be obtained using(More)
