Stroke & Brain Injury


Combined SCI and TBI: Recovery of forelimb function after unilateral cervical spinal cord injury (SCI) is retarded by contralateral traumatic brain injury (TBI), and ipsilateral TBI balances the effects of SCI on paw placement

… Heart rate and blood oxygenation was monitored with a Mouse Ox ™ pulse-oximeter A significant proportion (estimates range from 16 to 74%) of patients with spinal cord injury (SCI) have concomitant traumatic brain injury (TBI), and the combination often produces difficulties in planning and implementing rehabilitation strategies and drug therapies. For example, many of […]

Interleaved imaging of cerebral hemodynamics and blood flow index to monitor ischemic stroke and treatment in rat by volumetric diffuse optical tomography

… was monitored by a rectal probe and was maintained by a heating pad between 36.5 0 C and 37 0 C. Physiological parameters including heart rate, breath rate, and arterial oxygen saturation were measured and monitored by a pulse oximeter (MouseOx, STARR Life Sciences … Diffuse optical tomography (DOT) has been used by several […]

Glutamate transporter type 3 mediates isoflurane preconditioning-induced acute phase of neuroprotection in mice

… Heart rate, breathing rate and pulse oximeter oxygen saturation (SpO 2 ) of mice were monitored continuously and noninvasively using a MouseOX Murine Plus Oximeter System (Starr Life Sciences Corporation, Oakmont, PA, USA). … A pre-exposure to isoflurane reduces ischemic brain injury in rodents (isoflurane preconditioning). This neuroprotection has acute and delayed phases. Our […]
