ICU Monitoring

There is increased awareness the monitoring patients in the ICU with continuous EEG is relevant for improvement patient care, including prognostication. A potential drawback of the EEG is that visual analysis is time-consuming and not easy for non-EEG experts. We have developed several techniques to transform the EEG signal to  a more intuitive interface, allowing quick review not only by neurologists, but also intensive care physicians and nurses.
