A research team led by investigators at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, FL has found that a small device worn on a patient’s brow can be useful in monitoring stroke patients in the hospital. Researchers say the device might offer a reliable way to monitor hospitalized patients for recurrent strokes in real time. The device measures blood oxygen, similar to a pulse oximeter, which is clipped onto a finger.
Their study, published in the Feb. 1 issue of Neurosurgical Focus, suggests this tool, known as frontal near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS), could offer hospital physicians a safe and cost-effective way to monitor patients who are being treated for a stroke, in real time.
The study was approved by the Mayo Clinic IRB and not sponsored or funded by any company. The authors declare no conflicts of interest.
