Real-time monitoring of brain health is essential after severe brain injury

Over 1.2 million patients in the US per year suffer from severe brain injury and receive intensive care in days to weeks following the initial injury. Effective care in the post-injury period is critical to prevent secondary brain damage and optimize outcome.

Stroke

150,000

CASES PER YEAR

Following initial injury from a severe stroke, patients are at risk for brain injury due to insufficient blood flow or elevated intracranial pressure. Continuous EEG can identify these changes and allow a clinician to intervene before additional permanent brain damage occurs.

Traumatic Brain Injury

200,000

CASES PER YEAR

Medical complications and untreated downstream effects of initial damage can lead to secondary brain injury. Continuous EEG can detect changes as they occur to allow clinicians to intervene prior to worsening brain damage.

Cardiac Arrest

250,000

CASES PER YEAR

Loss or decrease of blood flow to the brain can lead to permanent brain damage. Continuous EEG is critical to help guide clinical decision making to optimize heart function and preserve brain health.

Premature Birth

150,000

CASES PER YEAR

Babies born prematurely can suffer from hypoxic brain injury and seizures in the days to weeks spent in the neonatal ICU. Continuous EEG can uniquely identify these changes and help clinicians prevent permanent brain damage in these children.

Uncontrolled Seizures

300,000

CASES PER YEAR

Patient suffering from sepsis, liver failure, and many other medical diseases can develop seizures or become comatose. In these patient continuous EEG is critical for guiding clinicians on the best path to protect the brain.
