ICU EEG Monitoring
Intensive Care Continuous EEG (cEEG) monitoring helps track changes that affect patient outcomes
Who should be monitored with cEEG in the ICU?
- Anyone whose brain is at risk
- Critically ill, obtunded patients
- Patients in surgical recovery, especially post cardiac surgery
- Patients with suspected:
- Status Epilepticus
- Nonconvulsive Status Epilepticus | NCSE
- Cerebral ischemia
- Metabolic Diseases
- Congenital Diseases, especially Cardiac Anomalies
- Brain Death Diagnosis
Why Use EEG in the ICU?
- EEG is the only real-time brain function parameter
- EEG is very sensitive for changes in brain function, hypoxia, and ischemia
- EEG is inexpensive, especially compared to CT, MRI, and ICP
- EEG is non-invasive, with no radiation or other risks
- EEG can be monitored continuously for days or weeks
- EEG is portable and can easily be moved between patients
- EEG is the best available method for detecting clinical and sub-clinical seizures, and monitoring seizure treatment
The brain is a vital sign, too.
- ICU cEEG helps specialists gain immediate insight into brain abnormalities
- EEG helps evaluate cerebral function
- EEG helps identify clinical and sub-clinical seizures and monitor the effects of treatment
- EEG can reduce misdiagnoses of sub-clinical seizures
- EEG can provide early assessment of outcome following HIE, IVH or stroke
- EEG can provide early identification of brain injury
How to simplify EEG in the ICU.
- Use simple measurement tools like a head cap
- Reduce the number of electrodes
- Use intuitive, easy-to-learn software with visual notifications
- Improve impedances with subdermal needle electrodes
- Customize Study Types for specific ICU settings
- Start the study in one click
- Remotely monitor multiple patients
Arc is the Intensive Care EEG solution for accurately and easily measuring, analyzing, and reporting brain function
Arc offers two solutions for ICU EEG monitoring with video: Arc Essentia and Arc Apollo+. Both can be cart-mounted or hardwired into a room, and both offer 32 channels of quality EEG. Arc Apollo+ also has a 64-channel amplifier option.
