Abstract : This report results from a contract tasking St. George's Medical School as follows: The contractor will investigate a cluster of reliable noninvasive techniques for the tracking of improvements in oxygen delivery, oxygen availability and oxygen usage within and in the vicinity of sites of injury. The investigator evaluates a range of state-of-the-art commercially available techniques designed to monitor the status of tissue hemodynamics and energetics in humans, both within and upstream of selected locations, such as the limbs and the brain. Techniques will include near infrared spectroscopy and doppler based ultrasound monitoring of regional blood velocities and flows.
