Dr. Grinspan Helps Lead Effort to Design Specifications for Device to Improve Care for Critically Ill Children

Dr. Zachary Grinspan (Healthcare Policy and Research) and Dr. Barry Kosofsky (Pediatrics) lead an international, multidisciplinary effort to design specifications for a pediatric neurology intensive care bedside multimodal monitor. Such a device would improve care for critically ill children with devastating neurological diseases, such as traumatic brain injury, stroke, or unremitting seizures (status epilepticus). They worked closely with several colleagues at Weill Cornell Medicine and Technion Israel Institute of Technology, including experts in epilepsy, pediatric neurology, pediatric critical care, neurology intensive care, signal processing, human factors and visualization. Their work appears in Applied Clinical Informatics.
