Intracranial hemorrhage detection
The key to complete point of care testing of trauma patients
Point-of-care diagnosis is key to providing early treatment. A fast and non-invasive screening test of trauma patients at the site results in fast triaging which allows for significantly improved diagnostics and treatment process.
But complete point-of-care testing that tests for brain injury remains elusive today because the head trauma patients are missed during triage in case the patient has sustained no external injuries or is not exhibiting any clinical symptom.
Glasgow coma scale has proved to be a very effective triaging methodology in acute traumatic brain injury when a patient is presented with clinical symptoms, however it remains inconclusive in mild traumatic brain injury especially when the patients are asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic due to technology barrier that can detect an injury in absence of symptoms. Once this is solved, a complete point of care diagnosis of trauma patients will become possible.
Each year more than 50 million suffer from traumatic brain injury in the world and $76.5 billion are spent by the US alone in management of these patients.
Patients wait for several hours before clinical symptoms arise, and doctors sometimes make critical decisions with incomplete information.
Although CT scanners are very reliable diagnostic tools for intracranial hemorrhage detection, these cannot be deployed onsite for mass screening owing to their infrastructure requirement, exposure to ionizing radiation and need of a radiologist, which creates a huge demand for an objective assessment of the injury with a portable device that can be used by a paramedic or semi skilled staff.
Cerebo combines class-leading detection accuracy with ease-of-use, compact design, and pricing tailored to the point-of-care market. Our solution takes minutes to run, can be performed by a technician with minimal training and doesn't require cumbersome testing setup to generate the result.
It's 3 am and a family visits the trauma centre, they have met with an accident. They all have some external bruises and the kid has a mild headache. Is it serious? Do you need to rush them to urgent care, to the CT scan, or neither? Is it worth risking the delay if you aren’t sure? Cerebo helps answer these questions by letting you know if the brain is bleeding internally. Right when you need it. Right at the site.
