POST OPERATIVE DELIRIUM
NeuroServo has developed a brain wave capture device (EEG) that combines the characteristics of being miniaturized, non-intrusive, portable, instant-use, and motion-resistant. The brain waves are analyzed in real time by the NeuroServo algorithms, allowing the early diagnosis of postoperative delirium, a condition affecting 30% to 70% of hospitalized patients aged 65 and over after a major surgery (source: Ely, ICM 2007), dangerous for the patient (permanent cognitive losses) and very expensive for the health system ($16,000 to $64,000 per patient) when diagnosed late.
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.
