Cerebral Blood Flow Monitor
Codman is now distributing a only minimally invasive device that can measure cerebral blood flow and cerebral tissue perfusion developed by Hemedex Inc. The Hemedex QFlow 500 Perfusion Probe is placed into cerebral tissue where it responds rapidly to changes in cerebral perfusion, allowing clinicians to quickly individualize therapy. The probe is connected to the Bowman Perfusion Monitor®, which calculates, stores and displays the perfusion data. This technology can help doctors better identify and manage those patients at risk for complications from stroke, traumatic brain injury and subarachnoid hemorrhage due to decreased cerebral blood flow by providing continuous, real-time, soft-tissue perfusion measurements in absolute units.
