Dr. Paulina Sergot Publishes New Study in Stroke

Paulina Sergot, MD FACEP was lead author of a new article in Stroke titled “Portable Neuromonitoring Device Detects Large Vessel Occlusion in Suspected Acute Ischemic Stroke”. Dr. Sergot studied (and continues to study) a novel Somato-Sensory Evoked Potential device that proved to be more sensitive and as specific as many of our stroke scales for detecting Large Vessel Occlusion (LVO) strokes.

Dr. Sergot has a longstanding interest in furthering the diagnosis and care of neurological emergencies, such as stroke and traumatic brain injury. Her research focus was spurred by her experience as a Howard Hughes Research Fellow, where she investigated neurogenesis after acute stroke. She has been a Co-Investigator of Transforming Research and Clinical Knowledge in TBI (TRACK-TBI). She is a Co-Investigator of the Neurological Emergencies Treatment Trials Network (NETT) and is a site Co-Investigator of the Strategies to Innovate Emergency Care Clinical Trials (SIREN) network.
