If you're healthy and aged between 40 and 80, researchers at University of Southampton would love to hear from you. Don't worry, they don't want to drill into your skull, just take some measurements wearing some very special 'headphones'.

High pressure inside the skull (ICP) caused by injury, leaking blood vessels or infection can lead to confusion, coma or death. Thanks in part to initial funding provided by Smile4Wessex (see Brain Pulse Project), researchers at University of Southampton are developing a new device that could save lives by giving a quick, early warning of high pressure. Right now they need measurements from healthy people to identify a normal range of pressures before using the headset with patients.

If you can spare just two hours of your time and are:

• Aged 40-80 years

• Have no current ear, nose or  throat problems, and

• Have not had ear surgery in the past (except grommets) 

then you could help this exciting project, and potentially help save thousands of lives.

To find out more, please contact Tom or Steve on 023 8120 3370 or email ICPstudy@uhs.nhs.uk

Reasonable travel expenses will be provided.
