More information of TBI
Approximately 80% are defined as “mild TBI”, which although they require assistance in the emergency services and generally the performance of a cranial computed tomography (CT), they represent a relatively good prognosis, although it has been described that up to 20% may suffer long-term sequelae despite initially normal imaging test
- To assess the feasibility of measuring quickly H-FABP using a Point of Care (POC) device in patients with mild TBI and to relate its levels to the presence of lesions on cranial CT.
- To assess the utility of performing serial H-FABP determinations in patients with initially pathological CT and to relate it to the prognosis of TBI.
- To assess whether the incorporation of new biomarkers improves the prediction of brain damage that can be done with H-FABP.
- Develop and validate a POC device capable of measuring various markers of brain damage in minutes in emergency departments
- Demonstrate that this device is also useful in the management of TBI in pediatric age.
