CHICAGO, IL – A pupillometry study was published in the latest edition of the Journal of Neuroscience Nursing (JNN), the official peer-reviewed journal of the American Association of Neuroscience Nursing (AANN).
The study, Integrating Quantitative Pupillometry into Regular Care in a Neurotrauma Intensive Care Unit, was authored by M Anderson, J Elmer, L Shutter, A Puccio, S Alexander from University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC).
The purpose of the study was to establish whether pupillometry could be successfully integrated into the established nursing workflow in their severe Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) protocol. The authors conclude use of automated pupillometry is acceptable to nursing staff in a neurotrauma ICU and staff believed that pupillometry results (in) enhanced clinical decision-making.
