Feedback... see Compass story

Assessing the brain metabolism of low-birthweight babies is but one use of the Bioflow monitoring device (shown here in prototype) that Nursing's Dr. Barbara Medoff-Cooper has developed with Dr. Mitchell Litt of Bioengineering and Dr. Reuben Kron of Psychiatry. A Compass feature tells how the instrument works to help assess babies at risk and determine when they can go home. The device is expected to go on the market in two years.

The nurse seated at right is Jacqueline M. McGrath of the project staff at the School of Nursing. Standing is Nursing student Christine Kelly.
