May 8, 2019 – New Study on Using Pupillometry Early After Cardiac Arrest Published in the Journal of Neurocritical Care
The study, “Neurological Pupil Index and Pupillary light Reflex by Pupillometry Predict Outcome Early After Cardiac Arrest,” authored by Richard R. Riker, Mary E. Sawyer, Victoria G. Fischman, Teresa May, Christine Lord, Ashley Eldridge, and David B. Seder, involved 55 adult post-Cardiac Arrest patients treated with targeted temperature management (TTM). The authors concluded: “Very early after resuscitation from cardiac arrest, abnormal Neurological Pupil Index and pupillary light reflex measurements by pupillometer are predictive of poor outcome, and are not usually associated with dilated pupils.” The study can be viewed here.
May 7, 2019 – Clinical Poster on NPi after Hemicraniectomy at 2019 AAN

May 2, 2019 – New Pupillometry Study Published in Critical Care
The study, “Quantitative pupillometry for the monitoring of intracranial hypertension in patients with severe traumatic brain injury,” authored by Fritz-Patrick Jahns, John Paul Miroz, Mahmoud Messerer, Roy T. Daniel, Fabio Silvio Taccone, Philippe Exckert, and Mauro Oddo, examined the relationship between the Neurological Pupil index (NPi) and invasive ICP in 54 patients with severe TBI. The study found for subjects with intracranial hypertension (ICHT), episodes of sustained elevated ICP were associated with a concomitant decrease in NPi. The full study can be viewed here.
April 25, 2019 – A new study was published in the April edition of the Journal of Stroke and Cerebrovascular Diseases (JSCVD).
The study, “Correlation of Objective Pupillometry to Midline Shift in Acute Stroke Patients”, authored by Mohamed Osman, Sonja E. Stutzman, Folefac Atem, DaiWai Olson, Amber D. Hicks, Stefany Ortega-Perez, Salah G. Aoun, Ahmed Salem, and Venkatesh Aiyagari, involved 134 patients with acute ischemic stroke or intracerebral hemorrhage. The study found in patients with ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes, there is a signiﬁcant correlation between the septum pellucidum (SPS) and the Neurologic Pupil index (NPi®)….. but not with pupillary size. The authors concluded NPi assessment by automated pupillometry could be considered as a useful surrogate to noninvasively monitor midline shift in stroke patients and help in utilization of imaging and indicate the need to intervention. The study can be viewed here.
April 1, 2019 – New Study Results Show NPi Improves Following Osmotic Therapy in Critical Care Patients
A new study was published in the April edition of the Journal of Neurocritical Care, the official journal of the Neurocritical Care Society (NCS).
The study, “Effects of Osmotic Therapy on Pupil Reactivity: Quantification Using Pupillometry in Critically Ill Neurologic Patients”, authored by C Ong, M Hutch, M Barra, A Kim, S Zafar and S Smirnakis, involved 72 patients at two centers in Boston. The study found that significant quantifiable improvement in pupillary reactivity, by measuring NPi® (Neurological Pupil index™), followed administration of osmotic therapy in critically ill patients with cerebral edema. The study was conducted with support from the American Brain Foundation. The study can be viewed here.
