RHAEOS Trial Summary

This trial tech aims to improve care for those suffering from hydrocephalus, providing a wireless, noninvasive way to monitor CSF flow in shunts and reduce unnecessary imaging, hospital stays & readmissions.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for patients who have hydrocephalus and currently have one or more external ventricular drains (EVDs) in place. It's not suitable for those without any EVDs.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The trial is testing FlowSense, a wireless, noninvasive device that monitors cerebrospinal fluid flow through shunts to detect blockages or malfunctions without the need for complex equipment.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Since FlowSense is noninvasive and similar to wearing a bandage on the neck, it likely has minimal side effects related to skin contact such as potential irritation or discomfort at the site of application.

Experimental Treatment
Active Control
Group I: Phase BExperimental Treatment1 Intervention
Exploratory study to generate initial data on the correlation between FlowSense flow rate measurements (FlowSense Flow Rate) and: A) EVD drainage data, quantified via video recording; B) intracranial pressure (ICP) measurements
Group II: Phase A:Active Control1 Intervention
Establish suitability of digital video recording system for quantifying CSF drainage into an EVD drainage system.
