  • Monash study reveals insights into brain injury, blood carbon dioxide levels and hospital deaths

    Professor Ravi Tiruvoipati
    by Anne Crawford

    A large multi-centre study has made an important finding about the relationship between hypercapnia (high carbon dioxide or CO2) in the blood of patients with acute brain injury and hospital mortality. CO2 makes your blood more acidic which, if not adjusted, can affect your outcomes for the worse.
    Professor Ravindranath Tiruvoipati, Adjunct Clinical Professor at the Peninsula Clinical School, Monash University and Intensive Care Specialist at Frankston Hospital, Peninsula Health, was first author on the paper, published in JAMA Neurology.  

    Participants sought: Can fibromyalgia be reduced by brain stimulation?

    The Monash Alfred Psychiatry Research Centre (MAPrc) at the Alfred Hospital is currently seeking volunteers for a clinical trial of a non-medication investigational treatment for fibromyalgia (muscle pain).

    Theta Burst Stimulation (TBS) is a painless, safe, and non-invasive means of stimulating nerve cells in the brain. We are conducting this study to see whether we can reduce the symptoms of fibromyalgia.
