null McGill team’s index predicts coma recovery with 100% accuracy
New Adaptive Reconfiguration Index has crucial implications for clinical management and decision-making in unconscious and unresponsive brain-injured patients
Source: Health E-News. A McGill-led team has developed a new index that predicts with 100% accuracy whether patients in a vegetative or coma state will recover consciousness within three months – which has crucial implications for clinical decision-making. The preliminary findings, out of the Biosignal Interaction Personhood and Technology (BIAPT) lab of Stefanie Blain-Moraes, Ph.D., P.Eng., appear in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.
Stephanie Blain-Moraes is a member of the Brain Repair and Integrative Neuroscience (BRaIN) Program at the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre and an assistant professor in the School of Physical and Occupational Therapy in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, McGill University.
