Gainesville, FL USA, September 18, 2018 — EncephaloDynamics today announced its participation in the Neurocritical Care 16th Annual Meeting. This four-day event will be held on September 25-28, 2018 at the Boca Raton Resort & Club in Boca Raton, FL.
EEG-Now™ an advanced product for EEG acquisition that takes only minutes to apply. The EEG-Now™ sensor array cap enables the easy placement of an entire set of 21 EEG leads on the head in just a few minutes. “Utilizing EEG-Now™, healthcare facilities can quickly perform an EEG recording to help diagnose various kinds of brain injuries including altered mental status, seizures, concussion, traumatic brain injury, stroke, epilepsy, and other neurological disorders,” stated J. Chris Sackellares, M.D., President of EncephaloDynamics, Inc. “Fast diagnosis and interventions are crucial when time loss equals brain loss. Because EEG setup time is reduced from 20 to 25 minutes to around 3 minutes, EEG-Now™ will help to improve patient outcomes and prevent avoidable deaths.”
According to co-inventor and EncephaloDynamics Chief Technical Officer, Scott Bearden, R. EEG/EP T., CNIM, CLTM, “Using EEG-Now, neurointensivists can now answer a host of diagnostic questions such as: Is the patient currently having a nonconvulsive seizure or are they in a nonconvulsive status epilepticus? Is a patient undergoing therapeutic hypothermia having NCS or in NCSE? Is the patient myoclonic twitching, eye deviation or posturing likely seizure related or not?” With 30 years of EEG recording experience, Mr. Bearden was motivated to bring to market an EEG sensor array cap that would be easy for any healthcare professional to use. “I spent a majority of my career frustrated because I knew the power of an EEG in diagnostics, but I was limited by current EEG acquisition technology.” Mr. Bearden added, “But today I am proud to be a part of solving that problem. Our technology opens this critical diagnostic tool to millions of patients who need an EEG but could not get one due to the length of the procedure of the lack of trained technicians.”
EEG-Now was cleared by the FDA in May 2018 and is now in production. Pre-orders will be taken at the conference with delivery expected in November 2018.
EEG-Now representatives will be available at Booth #211 for additional inquiries and in-booth demonstrations throughout the event. Sales requests can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
