Clinical Trial Summary

The pupilometer determines the alteration of the pupil diameter after a defined light stimulus. In this study data is collected from pupilometer measurements of patients with an acute cerebral disease. The measurements take place during daily neurological routine examinations. The values are compared to outcomes resulting from pupilometer measurements done on patients having not an acute cerebral disease (e.g. cerebral aneurysm without symptoms). The study aims to establish the not invasive method of pupillometry for detecting neurological degradations early.


Clinical Trial Description

The pupilometer determines the alteration of the pupil diameter after a defined light stimulus providing information of the autonomic nerve system. The result collecting from pupillometry is objective and more precise than the subjective-visual evaluation of the pupil and its reactivity.

In this observational study data is collected from pupilometer measurements of patients with an acute cerebral disease. The measurements take place during neurological routine examinations. The first measurement is done during the initial diagnosing examination, followed by daily measurements and ending with measurements after 3 and 6 month upon hospital discharge. The values are compared to standard values resulting from pupilometer measurements done on patients having non-acute cerebral disease (e.g. cerebral aneurysm without symptoms). The study aims to establish the not invasive method of pupillometry for detecting neurological degradations early. ;
