Case Patient – centered care
Every stroke patient is unique – and so is their journey. Are you prepared to adapt?
Some stroke patients need closer hemodynamic monitoring – not just during thrombolysis, but because they are hypertensive for example. Some patients may have an altered level of consciousness due to increased intracranial blood pressure, neurological affectation, or possible seizures. After treatment, patients benefit from early mobilization and rehabilitation.
Within each stroke patient’s journey, how can you adapt to specific requirements, to make diagnosis more comprehensive? Access diverse solutions to adapt to individual needs and ensure efficient monitoring.
Draw more hemodynamic information
Each stroke patient’s needs for blood pressure monitoring are different. Conditions may be in flux, or simply require closer observation.
You can trigger non-invasive blood pressure measurements when required with our PWTT parameter. Even if this means measurements every five minutes, they are fast, reliable, and gentle, due to our iNIBP technology and comfortable Yawara Cuff 2.
Measure continuously with an arterial line
For hypertensive patients – or when rapid variations are anticipated – use continuous arterial blood pressure to gain a more accurate reading of the patient’s current blood pressure.
Be alerted if hemodynamics change
Beyond analyzing pressure, you may want to assess the hemodynamic trends of your patient and be alarmed if there are significant changes. Now you can non-invasively observe estimated continuous cardiac output in real-time, thanks to our innovative esCCO™ technology. No additional sensors are required, since esCCO uses only the common vital sign parameters of ECG, SpO2, and blood pressure.
Integrate NeuroMonitoring to the level you need
When stroke patients present an impaired level of consciousness, it can be especially difficult to detect ongoing neurological issues. However, it’s crucial to quickly identify seizures in stroke patients, to ensure the right treatment. With Nihon Kohden’s foundations and heritage in neurology, you can be sure of connected, continuous EEG monitoring (cEEG) to meet the needs of you and your patients.
|Up to 10% of patients may suffer seizures after stroke. Forty percent of seizures after ischemic stroke occur in the first 24 hours.|
If you want to access the full range of NeuroMonitoring capabilities, bring our standalone EEG devices to the point of care. Our Neurofax EEG devices are highly scalable, with a wide variety of hardware and software options to cover everything from routine EEG recording to high level brain function research. Alternatively, simply connect our compact EEG module to our Life Scope monitors to examine up to eight channels in real time. Both solutions enable quick data review, with various trends including Density Spectral Array (DSA), Compressed Spectral Array (CSA), and amplitude-integrated EEG (aEEG).

Whatever your particular stroke unit challenges, we can help you implement neurology solutions alongside patient monitoring. Consult our experts to tap into our vast resources and experience.
Free patients to start early rehabilitation
Stroke patients benefit from rehabilitation efforts as early as possible. Guided by physiotherapists, patients work to increase their mobility with stationary and walking exercises. But when patients remain connected to patient monitors with cables, you face two options. Either disconnect the cables – and cease monitoring – or limit the exercises.
With our telemetry solutions, monitoring and rehabilitation can walk hand in hand. Our Life Scope G3 is a wearable vital sign telemeter which allows you to monitor ECG, respiratory rate, and SpO2 while at the same time supporting patients with freedom of movement. Patients feel encouraged to regain their independence and actively engage in their own recovery. With one of the broadest telemetry portfolios available, we can tailor a solution to fit your needs.
