- Emergency burr holes: "How to do it"Mark H Wilson
London s Air Ambulance, The Helipad, The Royal London Hospital, London E1 1BB, UK
Scand J Trauma Resusc Emerg Med 20:24. 2012..This paper describes a simple approach to emergency burr hole evacuation of extra-axial intracranial haematoma that can be used in the uncommon situation when life saving specialist neurosurgical intervention is not available...
- Direct measurement of intracranial pressure at high altitude and correlation of ventricular size with acute mountain sickness: Brian Cummins' results from the 1985 Kishtwar expeditionMark H Wilson
Centre for Aviation, Space, and Extreme Environment Medicine, University College London, London, England
Neurosurgery 63:970-4; discussion 974-5. 2008..Unfortunately, the data were thought to have been destroyed by fire, and, hence, the findings were not published. The data have now been rediscovered, and this article reviews the methodology and findings of this unique piece of work...
- Changes in pupil dynamics at high altitude--an observational study using a handheld pupillometerMark H Wilson
London Helicopter Emergency Medical Service, The Helipad, The Royal London Hospital, Whitechapel, London, UK
High Alt Med Biol 9:319-25. 2008..There appears to be a marked diurnal variation in pupil size. The measurements clearly demonstrated an effect of hypoxia on cerebral function, but these changes did not relate to moderate AMS...
- The cerebral effects of ascent to high altitudesMark H Wilson
Centre for Altitude, Space and Extreme Environment Medicine, University College London, London, UK
Lancet Neurol 8:175-91. 2009..The effects of hypobaric hypoxia might also provide new insights into the understanding of hypoxia in the clinical setting...
- Stroke at high altitude diagnosed in the field using portable ultrasoundMark H Wilson
Institute for Human Health and Performance, Ground Floor, Charterhouse Building, UCL Archway Campus, Highgate Hill, Archway, London, UK
Wilderness Environ Med 22:54-7. 2011..The patient was then evacuated to a hospital in Kathmandu over the next 48 hours. This case report suggests that portable ultrasound could be used in the prehospital arena to enable early diagnosis of thrombotic stroke...
- Cerebral venous system and anatomical predisposition to high-altitude headacheMark H Wilson
The Traumatic Brain Injury Centre, St Mary s Hospital, Imperial College, London, W1 2NY United Kingdom
Ann Neurol 73:381-9. 2013..We postulated that HAH results when hypoxia-associated increases in cerebral blood flow occur in the context of restricted venous drainage, and is worsened when cerebral compliance is reduced. We explored this hypothesis in 3 studies...
- Cerebral artery dilatation maintains cerebral oxygenation at extreme altitude and in acute hypoxia--an ultrasound and MRI studyMark H Wilson
Centre for Altitude, Space and Extreme Environment Medicine, Institute of Human Health and Performance, Charterhouse Building, UCL Archway Campus, University College London, London, UK
J Cereb Blood Flow Metab 31:2019-29. 2011....
- Design and conduct of Caudwell Xtreme Everest: an observational cohort study of variation in human adaptation to progressive environmental hypoxiaDenny Z H Levett
Centre for Altitude Space and Extreme Environment Medicine, UCL Institute of Human Health and Performance, First Floor, Charterhouse Building, UCL Archway Campus, Highgate Hill, London, N19 5LW, UK
BMC Med Res Methodol 10:98. 2010..The aim of this study was to describe the spectrum of adaptive responses in humans exposed to graded EHH and identify factors (physiological and genetic) associated with inter-individual variation in these responses...
