Study on identifiying stroke in comatose patients

Prof. Dr. med. Jens Dreier
Prof. Dr. med. Jens Dreier

Prof. Dr. Jens Dreier from the CSB has investigated whether massive electrochemical brain waves herald the imminent occurrence of a stroke in patients during neurocritical care

Delayed strokes, which are associated with reduced cerebral blood flow, often occur in unconscious patients during neurocritical care who have suffered a cerebral hemorrhage a few days earlier. The delayed strokes worsen patient outcome, but are hardly recognizable to the treating physicians due to the reduced consciousness at the time of occurrence. Researchers at the CSB have investigated whether massive electrochemical brain waves, so-called spreading depolarizations, herald the onset of this complication.
