POST OPERATIVE DELIRIUM
Delirium is a common, but an often underdiagnosed complication in the elderly following major surgery. Recognising delirium in early stages and diagnosing the condition based on established criteria can improve the outcome and management. Managing delirium at its early stage with environmental, supportive and pharmacological interventions reduces the incidence and side-effects associated with post-operative delirium.
Currently, delirium is diagnosed with the use of a periodic assessment questionnaire on the patient’s condition and reaction, a method often debated as for its subjectivness and false negative rates.
NeuroServo offers an objective solution that detect delirium after capturing and analyzing the patient’s cerebral wavelengths (E.E.G.). This early detection device of delirium has attracted the attention of internationally recognized neurologists who lead clinical trials just starting in different prestigious hospitals in France.
