Predicting trouble: EEG, NO and stroke

We've recently published a paper titled "Electroencephalographic Response to Sodium Nitrite May Predict Delayed Cerebral Ischemia After Severe Subarachnoid Hemorrhage" on how electroencephalography (EEG for short) can be used to figure out which patients with a certain type of stroke (subarachnoid hemorrhage) will develop a complication after the initial brain bleed and which will not. … Continue reading Predicting trouble: EEG, NO and stroke

Hemoglobin: a gamechanger

Dissolved O2 can only supply a fraction of what the human body needs. One mL blood holds only about 0.003 mL O2 at a partial pressure of oxygen (PO2) of … Continue reading Hemoglobin: a gamechanger
