    Pupillometry and Neurosonography for Neuromonitoring in a Unit for Weaning and Early Rehabilitation
    Author(s): Fumiko Enchi*

    Background and purpose: Because neuroimaging is rarely readily available, long-term monitoring of intracranial pressure (ICP) in neurological/ neurosurgical patients during ventilator weaning and early neurorehabilitation currently relies on clinical observation. Pupilometry and multimodal neurosonography are evaluated for follow-up monitoring in this prospective study. Methods: During weaning and early neurorehabilitation, sonographic neuromonitoring was used to noninvasively examine the ICP of patients. It made it possible to measure the width of the third ventricle, the possibility of a midline shift, the flow velocities of the middle cerebral artery, and the diameters of the bilateral optic nerve sheaths. The size and reactivity of the pupils were measured with quantitative pupillometry. As controls, we used data from clinical follow-up,.. Read More»
