Cerebral Haemodynamics

by | Jun 27, 2011

The conference will take place in the Skempton Building on the South Kensington Campus of Imperial College London.

Blood flow and pressure in the brain are regulated by complex interacting control systems. Impairment of these systems may occur e.g. following stroke, trauma or anaesthesia, in premature babies or the elderly, and has been implicated in the development of subsequent brain injury. The non-invasive measurement of relevant physiological signals (blood flow, intracranial and blood pressure, CO2 levels, cerebral oxygen consumption etc.) is challenging and the subsequent assessment of these control systems perhaps even more so. Much also remains unknown about the physiology of haemodynamic control and best clinical interventions to optimize patient outcome.

This meeting aims to bring together researchers from all relevant disciplines active in the field, including clinicians, physiologists, engineers and physicists to discuss latest results and exchange experiences and ideas and provide an opportunity for networking between research groups and across disciplines.
