Case The journey continues
All eyes on the patient
Your holistic approach to resuscitation goes beyond advanced life support to include post-event care. But how do you gain access to the facts and figures you need along the entire pathway?
Continued monitoring helps you track progress, spot signs of deterioration, and deliver the precise care your patient needs. Nihon Kohden’s end-to-end portfolio is in step with your aims, with solutions that let you assess vital signs and identify the longer-term impact of cardiac arrest.
Our Life Scope PT monitor, for instance, lets you keep track of your patient’s condition as you transfer them within the hospital, giving you reliable, uninterrupted knowledge. The Life Scope G9 series is designed with high-acuity environments in mind. It delivers a clear picture of key parameters, helping you monitor post-resuscitation patients who may be seriously ill.
Nihon Kohden is a technology leader for the development of high-end neurology solutions. Our devices provide direct insight into brain activity, letting you see whether the level of consciousness is altered after SCA, and helping you meet ERC guidelines.
|ERC Guidelines 2015 on post-resuscitation care and NeuroMonitoring|
“Seizures are common after cardiac arrest and occur in approximately one-third of patients who remain comatose after ROSC [...] Use intermittent electroencephalography (EEG) to detect epileptic activity inpatients with clinical seizure manifestations. Consider continuous EEG to monitor patients with a diagnosed status epilepticus and effects of treatment.”
European Resuscitation Council and European Society of Intensive Care Medicine Guidelines for Post-resuscitation Care 2015. Section 5 of the European Resuscitation Council Guidelines for Resuscitation 2015. P207.
Nihon Kohden’s compact EEG module delivers a holistic approach to NeuroMonitoring, providing continuous EEG (cEEG) data and aEEG/DSA review options. These parameters can be fully integrated with our monitoring solutions. This gives you a complete view of your patient’s condition, supporting confident diagnostic decisions and post-resuscitation care that is in line with your patient’s requirements.
