There's still time to sign up for this Friday's Brain Matters webinar and we have a second one scheduled for next Friday!

We hope to see you at the AAN meeting here in Philly starting this weekend. Stop by booth #109 to say hello, see our latest innovations, and get some tips on good food and drink in our home city.
Brain Matters Webinar Series
Physiology Based Management of TBI: Challenges to Guide Therapy
Friday, May 3, 2019
1:00 pm EDT (US)

Clinical management of severe traumatic brain injury has traditionally been focused on control of intracranial pressure, which may be an insensitive and late indicator of secondary brain injury. The monitoring and treating of other physiologic variables, particularly  brain tissue oxygenation (PbtO2), may enhance patient care. Insights regarding physiological changes in the brain may be determined through responses of PbtO2 to controlled changes in FiO2, CO2 and MAP.

The methods to perform and interpret these dynamic “challenges” will be the focus of our next webinar given by Lori Shutter, MD, FNCS, FCCM, Professor of Critical Care Medicine, Neurology and Neurosurgery at the University of Pittsburgh.

Improving Outcomes in Neonatal Asphyxia: New Frontiers of Real Time Neuromonitoring Towards Precision Based Therapies
Friday, May 10, 2019
12:30 PM EDT (US)

Coming up on Brain Matters, Dr. Lina Chalak will be discussing the topic of neonatal asphyxia. The session will include challenges and updates for infants with so called “mild HIE”, new research involving physiological biomarkers to improve risk stratification of the disease severity within 6 hours, as well as new randomized trials of neuroprotection beyond hypothermia.

Dr. Lina F Chalak, MD, MSCS is an Associate Professor in Pediatrics and Neonatology at UT Southwestern and is also the Medical Director of the Parkland NeuroNICU program.

Visit Moberg ICU Solutions at booth #109 to learn how the CNS Monitor time-synchronizes and displays continuous EEG alongside a multitude of other physiological measurements to provide a more comprehensive picture of brain status.

Since Philly is our home city, we'd like to plan a get together for those hard core multimodal neuromonitoring folks, so let us know if you'll be here. We can also recommend a good restaurant or a fun bar!
