Trauma-related ICP report on MPMS100A
The US national Naval Medical Research Center in Silver Springs, MD has published a report describing a method and setup for investigating the effects of blast waves (explosions) on the brain and central nervous system. The report compares the MPMS100A Micro Pressure System (Samba*) with high-sampling PCB sensors and justifies the use of the MPMS100A Micro Pressure System for animal experiments.
See “Sensors to Assess Pressure-Mediated Effects on Blast-Induced Traumatic Brain Injury“. Mikulas Chavko. March 2009.
* Samba products are not available as of Nov. 2012 – contact a BIOPAC rep to discuss other solutions for micro pressure measurement.
