Last Week's FNNDSC Project Updates
The NIRS clinical research team had a busy week starting with a continuous monitoring session during a transfusion in the NICU. The team also had the opportunity to meet with one of their NICU Grads for their 2 year follow up with their amazing study psychologist Dr. Queally!
NIRS Engineering Team
The NIRS engineering team did testing of their recently constructed Intra-Operative probe, which is designed for older patients. They are investigating a new probe configuration that could potentially boost the signal twofold. The team also continues to be in contact with their collaborators in Uganda and are on track to make two shipments before the end of January.
Drs. Ivy Lin and Jason Sutin's project “Perioperative cerebrovascular autoregulation monitoring in patients with Moyamoya Syndrome” in collaboration with Drs. Craig McClain and Sol Soriano was funded by the Trailblazer award from the anesthesiology department!
