University of Cincinnati neurotrauma team awarded $2.1M to test 'lab on a tube'
Date:10/18/2010

n accessible on a single probe.

The end goal is for the device to further reduce invasiveness by doubling as a ventricular drainage tube. Such tubes are widely used to drain excess cerebrospinal fluid from the brain to relieve intracranial pressure.

The smart catheter's dual use as monitor and drainage tube, Hartings believes, could result in the tube's being widely adopted by neuroscience intensive care units throughout the United States.

"It will greatly accelerate research and clinical insight into the disease process," Hartings says. "There will be huge databases generated by these parameterssome of which we already know what to do with, and some of which we need to gain more experience with."

Clinical availability of the smart sensor is likely at least a decade away, Hartings says.

The five-year Advanced Technology/Therapeutic Development Award is part of the Department of Defense's Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury Research Program. The program reflects the military's heightened commitment to neurological research in response to the survival of large numbers of soldiers who suffered head injuries in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Researchers in UC's department of neurosurgery will collaborate with colleagues at the North Shore University HospitalLong Island Jewish Medical Center, who received a $2.6 million grant. Hartings' co-principal investigator is Raj Narayan, MD, chairman of the department of neurosurgery at North Shore-LIJ and director of the Harvey Cushing Institutes of Neuroscience.

Narayan led development of the smart sensor while serving as department chair at UC through 2009.

Additional co-investigators are Lori Shutter, MD, director of neurocritical care at the UC Neuroscience Institute; Chong Ahn, PhD, professor in the department of electrical and computer engineering at UC; and Chunyan Li, PhD, of North Shore-LIJ.
