Trauma Surgeons Push for Public Stop the Bleed Kits

Trauma kits in public places - much like AED's - could help save lives in active shooter events when EMS is unable to reach victims until the scene is secured. Bystanders with tools and knowledge could prevent bleed out deaths in some shooting victims.

Quickly Assessing Brain Bleeding in Head Injuries Using New Device

AHEAD300TW.jpg

In a clinical trial conducted among adults in 11 hospitals, researchers have shown that a hand-held EEG device approved in 2016 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that is commercially available can quickly and with 97 percent accuracy rule out whether a person with a head injury likely has brain bleeding and needs further evaluation and treatment. The trial results also show the device predicted the absence of potentially dangerous brain bleeding 52 percent of the time in the participants tested.

Studying the Brain's Suspension System in TBIs

BrainCurlcopy.jpg

Traumatic brain injury, or TBI, can be devastating and debilitating. Researchers know that the membranes separating the skull from the brain play a key role in absorbing shock and preventing damage caused during a head impact, but the details remain largely mysterious. New research from a team of engineers at Washington University in St. Louis takes a closer at this “suspension system” and the insight it could provide to prevent TBI.

Disrupted Brain Pathway, Altered Stress Hormones Key to TBI Impact Differences in Men, Women

The brains of men and women are wired differently, and when it comes to traumatic brain injuries (TBI), women are more likely to develop subsequent neuropsychiatric disorders, like anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. Until now, it’s been unclear why that is, but a new study by researchers at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USU) provides that missing link – a potentially disrupted pathway in the brain.
