EEG in intensive care is recorded for various reasons such as routine EEG, recording for suspected brain death or long-term EEG monitoring. Continuous EEG trending is an important tool to recognize clinically invisible deteriorations in critically ill patients. However, manually reviewing continuous EEG recordings requires substantial resources, which are always limited in intensive care units. As a consequence, brain activity of critically ill patients is rarely monitored. We introduce NeuroTrend, a new system for automatic analysis and trending of continuous EEG recordings from critically ill patients. NeuroTrend automatically determines Main Terms and most important Modifiers of the ACNS’ standardized critical care EEG terminology. It produces a graphical representation, allowing reading off trends in the neurological state of the patients.
Special trolleys guarantee easy maneuvering and simple sit-to-stand height adjustment. alpha trace mobile solutions may be equipped with an all in one touch PC, mounted on a flexible arm with side to side adjustment. In ICUs an EEG amplifier sensitive but tolerant of electrical interferences is essential. For these demands alpha trace offers proven, mobile and portable EEG systems.
Some mobile applications call for video monitoring, in these cases a camera can easily be integrated with the systems components.
