Case Patient – centered care
Every patient is unique – and so is their pathway in intensive care. Are you ready for a patient-centered care approach that is truly continuous?
A patient-centered approach adjusts diagnostic and therapy-related actions to reflect individual needs. At Nihon Kohden, we aim to create proactive offerings which help the patient with continuous diagnoses – increasing their safety, and leading to a better outcome.
Seizures are common in the ICU. 8% of general ICU patients were found to be in non-convulsive status epilepticus.
cEEG – for clarity if mental status is unclear
An unclear mental status, non-convulsive status epilepticus and therapy monitoring are recommended indicators for continuous EEG (cEEG) monitoring in the ICU. Our NeuroMonitoring solutions give you quick, easy access to cEEG, either as an ICU parameter with an 8-channel module, or with a traditional EEG device. Clearly structured analysis methods such as DSA and aEEG allow even non-expert staff to review EEGs.
Hemodynamics – even non-invasive
Using the well-known PWTT parameter, Nihon Kohden has developed esCCO, a technology that can provide early notifications for hemodynamic changes. Because it is based on NIBP, SpO2 and ECG, no or extra effort is required. As it is directly available, it is a complimentary continuous monitoring tool to more cost-intensive invasive methods before inserting or after removing the catheter. PWTT and esCCO lead to more patient safety and early therapy decisions.
Continuous etCO2 instead of blood samples
Capnography provides fast, reliable insight into ventilation, circulation and metabolism. With Nihon Kohdens unique cap-ONE mainstream technology, etCO2 is immediately available – with no warm-up time, easy handling and maximum accuracy. The world’s smallest lightweight infrared sensor is attached to both intubated and non-intubated patients to give a continuous flow of data.
Interpret ST segments promptly
Large amounts of data are managed within ICU departments, and important details can be missed. When monitoring CAS (coronary artery syndrome) patients, it is vital to track and treat the evolution of myocardial infarction to improve outcomes and minimize risks. The ST Review graph provides a clear overview of the severity and extent of the ischemia area.
