Abstract

Objective: Cerebral edema, as a common secondary disease after stroke, can result in brain hernia and even death, effectively monitoring the process of cerebral edema do benefit the prognosis of stroke patients. While current methods have their inherent drawbacks, we utilized a novel frequency shift (FS) method to reflect the severity of cerebral edema. Method: In this paper, 12 rabbits (10 rabbits for experimental group and 2 rabbits for control group) were enrolled in the 24 h monitoring experiment. Those rabbits underwent monitoring utilizing a novel flexible conformal coil sensor, for which the FS induced by changed equivalent impedance of brain was extracted as the evaluation index. Findings: The results showed that this novel coil sensor can effectively monitor the process of cerebral edema. This innovative method has great potential in clinical usage which can assist medical staff conducting timely treatment in terms of its early warning capability.
