The EEG system quickly evaluates brain-wave information of unconscious patients. It is designed for quick setup and efficient placement of electrodes within five minutes to allow clinicians to quickly assess brain health and determine the best treatment options for unconscious patients, according to the company.
Clinicians can place up to eight electrodes on a patient and the electrodes provide high-quality EEG signals and streamlined data. The system features remote access functionality with Bluetooth connectivity to allow clinicians to access the information anywhere in a hospital.
“There are a number of critical neurological conditions that must be identified before proper treatment can begin,” president and CEO of Nihon Kohden America Yasuhiro Yoshitake said in a press release. “Unfortunately, the number of staff members who can conduct full, traditional EEG evaluations is limited nationwide. We developed VitalEEG to provide hospitals and clinics with an alternative method of conducting limited-channel EEGs that will allow them to obtain the information they need quickly and easily so that they can provide the best treatment for the patient without delay.”
