Stratus' nationwide expansion of remote EEG monitoring services for hospitals was launched at the 2024 Critical Care Congress.
IRVING, Texas, Feb. 12, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Stratus, the nation's leading provider of electroencephalogram (EEG) testing, announced the nationwide expansion of its remote EEG monitoring services for the intensive care unit (ICU) setting at the Critical Care Congress in Phoenix, AZ this month. Continuous monitoring of EEG recording for a subset of patients in the ICU can lead to improved outcomes for the patient and reduced length of stay in the ICU.
Stratus' remote monitoring services provide registered and highly skilled EEG technologists who can monitor the EEG recordings of patients 24 hours a day, 365 days per year. The technologists continuously monitor the EEG signal and alert ICU staff of any changes in the patient's data. Additionally, Stratus offers neurologist reading services to provide a full interpretation of the data and provide additional clinical guidance. These services are customized to the individual hospital's needs and can be provided to cover after-hours, weekends, and holidays, or on a full-time basis.
Continuous EEG monitoring can be a vital part of care for certain patients admitted to the ICU, including those with seizure disorders, traumatic brain injury, stroke, or post-cardiac arrest. The American Clinical Neurophysiology Society, National Institutes of Health, and others have published recommendations on the need for continuous EEG monitoring in these patients, but many times hospitals struggle to provide these services because of qualified staffing restraints. Stratus' expertise coupled with the largest pool of registered EEG technologists in the US, can help hospital administrators overcome this burden. Stratus can offer this service for patients requiring both scalp and intracranial EEG.
"Stratus offers a turn-key solution that meets the hospital wherever their staffing needs are," said Charlie Alvarez, CEO of Stratus. "As the industry leader, our large pool of registered EEG technologists means we can efficiently and cost-effectively offer these services to hospitals. We also offer the highest level of quality. Our technologists are all trained in continuous long-term monitoring and the company has been accredited by The Joint Commission. We are proud to support hospitals and physicians with providing the best possible outcomes for ICU patients."
