Abstract

Background. The main issue of stroke is an acute energy deficit which causes brain focal neurological deficits. The same situation is observed in heart circulation insufficiency. Brain ischemia and hypoxia leads to changes in breathing rhythm.
Material and methods. The original device called brain spirograph was used during research. Thanks to usage of a flow sensor, brain spirograph allows to registrate a breathing curve. Fifty patients in an acute phase of ischemic stroke and 40 volunteers were examined. The size of brain circulation insufficiency was assessed according to Clinical Groups of Whole Body Motorics Method.
Results. Our results indicate the connection between the size of brain circulation insufficiency and the shape of breathing curve.
Conclusions. Brain spirography is a simple, non-invasive method of assessment of the size of brain circulation insufficiency. This method could be used in monitoring of an acute phase of stroke.
