Abstract : This report results from a contract tasking St. George's Medical School to 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 evaluated 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. The techniques included near infrared spectroscopy and Doppler based ultrasound monitoring of regional blood velocities and flows.
