Patient care

Neuromonitoring includes cerebral microdialysis, used to identify metabolic disturbances in the brain, e.g., abnormalities of glucose metabolism, and measurements of cerebral blood flow, jugular venous oximetry (SjvO2), and brain tissue oxygen tension (PbtO2). These techniques are used after neurosurgery and in some patients with embolic strokes, epilepsy, subarachnoid hemorrhage, or traumatic brain injury to help identify neurological damage before it becomes irreversible.
