Nihon Kohden announced the launch of its VitalEEG™ wireless electroencephalogram (EEG) headset for rapid evaluation of brain-wave information of unconscious patients. Designed for quick setup and efficient placement of electrodes, VitalEEG is ready to go within five minutes, helping clinicians to quickly assess brain health and determine next steps for the treatment of an unconscious patient.
VitalEEG’s award-winning design allows healthcare providers to effortlessly place up to eight electrodes on a patient to monitor brain-wave data. The unique electrode design provides the high-quality EEG signals and streamlined data display that gives physicians the details they need for intervention of neurologically compromised patients. The system provides both remote access functionality, so clinicians can assess critical information from anywhere in the hospital, and Bluetooth communication, eliminating the need for additional cables.
Clinical studies have demonstrated that prolonged seizures can lead to brain damage. Rapid collection and visualization of EEG data can help healthcare providers determine whether the unconscious patient is suffering from seizures. Traditionally, technicians must prep patients with up to 21 precisely placed electrodes—a process that can take more than 45 minutes to complete—before an EEG recording can be collected.
