Interleukin-8 predicts fatigue at 12 months post-injury in children with traumatic brain injury
Interleukin‐8 predict fatigue in child TBI
(Mary Ann Liebert, 2019-12-27)
Despite many children experiencing fatigue after childhood brain injury, little is known about the predictors of this complaint. To date, traditional indices of traumatic brain injury (TBI) severity have not reliably ...
The impact of poor sleep on cognition and activities of daily living after traumatic brain injury : a review
Sleep and everyday activities after TBI
Background/aim : Patients frequently report sleep disrup-tions or insomnia during their hospital stay, particularlyafter a traumatic brain injury (TBI). The consequences ofthese sleep disturbances on everyday activities ...
Brain white matter damage and its association with neuronal synchrony during sleep
(Oxford University Press, 2019-01-28)
The restorative function of sleep partly relies on its ability to deeply synchronize cerebral networks to create large slow oscillations observable with EEG. However, whether a brain can properly synchronize and produce a ...
Evolution of severe sleep-wake cycle disturbances following traumatic brain injury: a case study in both acute and subacute phases post-injury
Background. Sleep-wake disturbances are frequently reported following traumatic brain injury (TBI), but they remain poorly documented in the acute stage of injury. Little is known about their origin and evolution. Case ...
Visual fixation in the intensive care unit: a strong predictor of post-traumatic amnesia and long-term recovery after moderate-to-severe traumatic brain injury
Visual fixation in the ICU
(Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins, 2016-12-01)
Objective: We examined whether visual fixation at 24h of intensive care unit (ICU) admission is superior to the initial Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) score to predict PTA duration and long-term TBI recovery. Design: Two-phase ...
Sleep in the acute phase of severe traumatic brain injury : a snapshot of polysomnography
Sleep and traumatic brain injury
Background and Objectives. The onset of pervasive sleep-wake disturbances associated with traumatic brain injury (TBI) is poorly understood. This study aimed to (a) determine the feasibility of using polysomnography in ...
Does age matter? A mixed methods study examining determinants of good recovery and resilience in young and middle-aged adults following moderate-to-severe traumatic brain injury
Recovery and resilience after TBI
Aim: To examine whether age contributes to functional recovery and resilience after moderate-to-severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). Background: The ability to recover from TBI may change across the lifespan, but the ...
Sleep and wake disturbances following traumatic brain injury
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major health concern in industrialised countries. Sleep and wake disturbances are among the most persistent and disabling sequelae after TBI. Yet, despite the widespread complaints of ...
Sleep-wake disturbances in hospitalized patients with traumatic brain injury: association with brain trauma but not with an abnormal melatonin circadian rhythm
(Oxford University Press, 2019-09-28)
Study Objectives: To test whether the sleep-wake cycle disruption in patients hospitalized with traumatic brain injury (TBI) 1) is also found in patients with traumatic injuries other than TBI (nonTBI); and 2) is associated ...
Sleep spindles are resilient to extensive white matter deterioration
(Oxford University Press, 2020-06-13)
Sleep spindles are an essential part of non-rapid eye movement sleep, notably involved in sleep consolidation, cognition, learning and memory. These oscillatory waves depend on an interaction loop between the thalamus and ...
