    Optical coherence tomography (OCT) in unconscious and systemically unwell patients using a mobile OCT device: a pilot study

    Objective This study aims to evaluate the feasibility of retinal imaging in critical care using a novel mobile optical coherence tomography (OCT) device. The Heidelberg SPECTRALIS FLEX module (Heidelberg Engineering, Heidelberg, Germany) is an OCT unit with a boom arm, enabling ocular OCT assessment in less mobile patients. Design We undertook an evaluation of the feasibility of using the SPECTRALIS FLEX for undertaking ocular OCT images in unconscious and critically ill patients. Setting This study was conducted in the critical care unit of a large tertiary referral unit in the United Kingdom. Participants 13 systemically unwell patients admitted to the ...
