Medical instrumentation solutions provider Nihon Kohden has introduced a new virtual care system, which enables simultaneous management of remote neuromonitored patients in real time from a centralized location.
The system, dubbed Live View Panel, allows clinicians to customize multiple electroencephalography (EEG) or polysomnogaphy (PSG) acquisition systems to gather data most critical for each monitored patient.
The information is exhibited on a single and interactive control screen with one-click access to clinically relevant information, helping in speed up of interpretation and improve outcomes.
Live View Panel, which was developed in collaboration with Cleveland Clinic, features control screen and several adjacent data display screens.
The control screen coordinates patient information into color-coded cards based on variables such as patient location, acuity level, physician or data modality, helping clinicians to monitor basic parameters of multiple patients simultaneously.
Clinicians can access more detailed patient-specific data on an adjacent screen with one touch to any card. The cards can also be rearranged through drag and drop to suit clinician preference and workflow.
Data in the EEG cards comprise of patient identifier, location field, monitoring status, heart rate, saturation of peripheral oxygen (SpO2), seizure count and seizure trend.
PSG cards exhibits apnea-hypopnea index, total sleep time, body position, continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), and heart rate, SpO2 and sleep state with trend options, including apnea/hypopnea, SpO2/desaturation, sleep stage, CPAP, carbon dioxide and heart rate.
Nihon Kohden America CEO Wilson Constantine said: "In a growing age of integrated care delivery, we believe that patients deserve the best quality care available, regardless of their physical location."
