Title (EN) SENSOR FOR NON-INVASIVELY MONITORING INTRACRANIAL PRESSURE
(FR) CAPTEUR POUR SURVEILLER LA PRESSION INTRACRÂNIENNE PAR UNE TECHNIQUE NON INVASIVE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An apparatus and method for measuring intracranial pressure non-invasively includes a frame that holds an acoustic sensor (e.g. a piezoelectric sensor) in place on the eyelid of a patient. The frame includes a means to adjust and control the amount of pressure that is exerted at the region of the eyelid that is in direct contact with the sensor. Changes intracranial pressure (which result in changes in dampening of acoustic signals transmitted through the cranium of the patient) are non-invasively detected by the acoustic sensor on the eyelid.
(FR)L'invention concerne un appareil et un procédé de mesure de la pression intracrânienne par une technique non invasive, qui comprennent un cadre qui maintient en place un capteur acoustique (par exemple un capteur piézoélectrique) sur la paupière d'un patient. Le cadre comprend un moyen d'ajustement et de régulation de la pression qui est exercée dans la région de la paupière qui est en contact direct avec le capteur. Les modifications de la pression intracrânienne (qui entraînent à des modifications de l'amortissement de signaux acoustiques transmis travers le crâne du patient) sont détectées de façon non invasive par le capteur acoustique sur la paupière.
