Join Dr. Wouter Potters, Technical Physician at Amsterdam UMC, for a presentation on novel ambulatory EEG technology and associated procedure designed to enable paramedics to better triage stroke patients and reduce time to therapy.
Millions of people suffer a stroke each year. Endovascular thrombectomy (EVT) dramatically improves prognosis after stroke, but only if done rapidly. Since EVT is performed in specialized hospitals only, there is an unmet clinical need to identify stroke patients eligible for EVT in the ambulance. Bringing such patients straight to an EVT hospital improves prognosis. Unfortunately, no triage instrument for the hyperacute phase of stroke is available. With the EEG setup presented in this webinar, paramedics could triage stroke patients and reduce the time to therapy.
Please Note: registration deadline is 24:00 (CEST) on November 23rd.
Key Topics Include:
- how to best utilize EEG to improve prognosis of stroke patients
- how to decide already in an ambulance if the patient is a candidate for EVT
- the added value of EEG for a stroke patient in an emergency setting
Who Should Attend?
- biomedical engineers
- neurophysiologists & neurologists
- emergency medicine specialists
- clinical neuroscientist
- professionals interested in clinical machine learning
In this webinar, experts at The Myers Neuro-Behavioral Core Facility at Tel-Aviv University address specific advantages and limitations of today’s home cage monitoring (HCM) technology used in behavioral research.
Stimulating and Recording Neuronal Activity During Traditional fMRI, and the Benefits When Doing This at “Zero” Echo Time
Experts discuss electrical and optical-based techniques capable of stimulating and recording neuronal activity during fMRI, share examples using these tools to study neurovascular coupling, and introduce a method to acquire fMRI data at zero echo time and discuss the advantages over traditional fMRI technique.
Dr. Jackie Limberg discusses the basics of human autonomic research and shares tips & tricks for data collection and analysis during human autonomic testing to improve the accuracy and reliability of your findings.
