When a patient is first being evaluated for an epilepsy diagnosis, a routine EEG or clinical EEG may be recommended. The Arc family offers two solutions for non-invasive baseline epilepsy monitoring with video: Arc Essentia® and Arc Apollo+®.
EEG in the EMU
Long-term inpatient monitoring utilizes EEG with video to diagnose epilepsy, and complete presurgical evaluations. Arc products help you diagnose definite epilepsy, determine types of seizures, identify subclinical activity, localize activity, complete pre-surgical evaluations, and monitor the effects of AEDs.
Arc Essentia is a 32-channel amplifier. Arc Apollo+ offers 32 and 64 channel amplifiers. Both can be installed hardwired or as cart-based systems, and Arc Apollo+ can allow your patients the benefits of an ambulatory system: portable, lightweight, comfortable, and battery powered.
When baseline EEG fails to localize the source of seizures, intracranial EEG with direct cortical stimulation may be used.
Arc Zenith is Cadwell’s solution for high-channel-count EEG with integrated cortical stimulation with grid, strip and stereotactic electrodes to functionally map the brain and localize epileptogenic zone(s).
- Subthreshold cortical stimulation can be used to help stop seizures in critical brain regions without affecting brain function.
- Cortical stimulation mapping and cortical somatosensory evoked potentials help guide the plan for epilepsy and tumor neurosurgery.
Arc EEG software for comprehensive epilepsy monitoring
Arc software features a simple platform, easy-to-interpret data, streamlined assessment tools, and a rich report generator.
Arc EEG software offers precision, accuracy, and flexibility for the entire patient journey through epilepsy, from monitoring and diagnosis to treatment. Authorized users can monitor multiple patients from a single computer, with immediate visual and auditory notifications for patient events and seizure detections. They can control camera functions and IP camera switching from any Arc computer to follow patients as they move around the facility. Patients can also be remotely monitored during multi-day in-home studies.
