Biosensor is designed to detect brain injuries occurring during heart surgery.

Biosensor Aims To Detect Brain Injuries During Heart Surgery

November 11, 2013

Johns Hopkins engineers and cardiology experts have teamed up to develop a fingernail-sized biosensor that could alert doctors when serious brain injury occurs during heart surgery. By doing so, the device could help doctors devise new ways to minimize brain damage or begin treatment more quickly. In the Nov. 11 issue of the journal Chemical […]
