The Effectiveness of Biofeedback for Individuals With Long-term Post-concussive Symptoms

40% of minor head injuries are diagnosed with post-concussion syndrome 3 months after injury (Ingebrigtsen, Waterloo, Marup-Jensen, Attner, & Romner, 1998). These individuals have persistent symptoms after completing conventional rehabilitation programs. Persistent post-concussion symptoms not only decrease quality of life (Ingebrigtsen et al, 1998), but also impair cognitive and motor ...

Impact of Early Optimization of Brain Oxygenation on Neurological Outcome After Severe Traumatic Brain Injury

Post-traumatic brain hypoxia/ischemia develops hours after traumatic brain injury (TBI), and its intensity is directly related to the neurological outcome. The thresholds for irreversible tissue damage following TBI indicate a particular vulnerability of injured brain. Improving brain oxygenation after severe TBI is the focus of modern TBI management in the ...

CPPopt Guided Therapy: Assessment of Target Effectiveness

Despite improvements in management, mortality in severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) remains 25% and only 40% of patients survive without major handicap. Medical/surgical interventions aim to maintain adequate brain perfusion, which is critically dependent on cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP); calculated as the difference between mean arterial pressure (MAP) and intracranial ...

Phase N/A

Implementation of Neuro Lung Protective Ventilation

Patients who experience lung injury are often placed on a ventilator to help them heal; however, if the ventilator volume settings are too high, it can cause additional lung injury. It is proven that using lower ventilator volume settings improves outcomes. In patients with acute brain injury, it is proven ...

Phase N/A

The NEUROlogically-impaired Extubation Timing Trial

Thousands of patients suffer severe brain injuries every year, from causes such as trauma, stroke, and infection. Extensive clinical research in weaning from mechanical ventilation has led to recommendations for prompt extubation following a successful trial of spontaneous breathing in general intensive care unit (ICU). However, little evidence exists to ...

Phase N/A

GLP-1 and Hyperoxia for Organ Protection in Heart Surgery

Patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) have associated atherosclerotic renal and cerebral disease making these organs especially vulnerable to ischemia during open heart surgery. At the Heart Center at Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen the investigators perform more than 1000 open heart surgery operations yearly. The primary indication is CAD with or ...

Phase N/A

Post-acute Structured Exercise Following Sport Concussion

A number of physical, cognitive, somatic, and emotional symptoms commonly occur following sports-related concussion. The current return to play (RTP) protocol advises complete physical and cognitive rest following SRC until patients are completely free of these symptoms (i.e. asymptomatic) in order to avoid making symptoms worse and furthering the injury. ...

Phase N/A

Cerebrovascular Reactivity in American Football Players

Investigators will measure cerebrovascular reactivity (CVR) using functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) during the chronic phase after repetitive mild traumatic brain injury (rmTBI) as a biomarker of traumatic cerebrovascular injury (TCVI). We hypothesize that CVR will be decreased in patients with rmTBI and that these decreases ...

Phase

Assessing Brain Changes Throughout the WCBH Program

Symptoms resulting from mild/moderate trauma to the brain are as varied as the individuals who sustain them. The currently held belief is that the majority of healing and functional recovery occurs within the first two years post injury. A large proportion of individuals who sustain mild/moderate brain injuries (mTBIs) do ...

Phase N/A

The Premature Gut Microbiome and the Influence on Neonatal Immunity Brain Development and White Matter Injury

Recent advances in neonatal intensive care have dramatically increased the survival rate of extremely premature infants but the number of survivors with severe morbidity and lifelong neurodevelopmental impairment remains high. Perinatal white matter injury is the predominant form of brain injury in premature infants, often leading to adverse neurodevelopmental outcome. ...
