Optibrain : Clinical decision support tool for severe head trauma in children
In 2003, the Brain Trauma Foundation proposed the first guidelines to guide the therapeutic approach for traumatic brain injury. Since then, they have been updated several times, the most recent of which was in 2019. In order to optimize their adherence and facilitate close monitoring of various brain functions, the CHU Sainte-Justine research team has developed, since 2015, an automated indicator system called " OptiBrain ".
This system measures quantitatively and in real time the quality of care after a TBI. This is possible thanks to an IT infrastructure that automatically collects several essential physiological variables recorded by monitors and medical instruments at the patient's bedside, at a high frequency (every 1 to 30 seconds depending on the indicators). This data is automatically analyzed to generate a summary of the quality of care (compliance with guidelines) and the physiological state of the brain of the patient.
In this project, our research team is developing a user interface to synthesize Optibrain data and facilitate the visualization of results. This system aims for more structured management of TBIs and assistance in decision-making for the operator, in a way that is well integrated into the care process.
