Nihon Kohden Debuts Breakthrough in Neuromonitoring Remote Access with Live View PanelIntuitive, Customizable System Enables Real-time Multi-Patient Management from Centralized Location
IRVINE, Calif.--(Healthcare Sales & Marketing Network)--Nihon Kohden, a U.S.-market leader in medical instrumentation solutions, has commercially launched Live View Panel™, a next generation virtual care system that allows for the simultaneous management of remote neuromonitored patients in real time from a centralized location. Using Live View Panel, clinicians can for the first time personally customize multiple electroencephalography (EEG) or polysomnogaphy (PSG) acquisition systems to gather data most critical for each monitored patient. The information is displayed on a single, interactive control screen, with one-click access to clinically relevant information that can help speed interpretation and improve outcomes.
“In a growing age of integrated care delivery, we believe that patients deserve the best quality care available, regardless of their physical location,” said Dr. Wilson P. Constantine, chief executive officer, Nihon Kohden America. “With Live View Panel, we are able to bring the best of the neuroscience community directly to patients wherever they are, improving access to care while also enhancing safety, clinician workflow and patient satisfaction.”
Developed in collaboration with Cleveland Clinic, the Live View Panel is composed of a control screen and several adjacent data display screens. The control screen organizes patient information into color-coded “cards” based on variables, such as patient location, acuity level, physician or data modality, allowing a clinician to monitor basic parameters of multiple patients simultaneously. With one touch to any card, clinicians can access more detailed patient-specific data on an adjacent screen. The cards can also be rearranged via drag and drop to suit clinician preference and workflow.
Data in the EEG cards includes patient identifier, location field, monitoring status, heart rate, saturation of peripheral oxygen (SpO2), as well as seizure count and seizure trend. PSG cards display apnea-hypopnea index, total sleep time, body position, continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), and heart rate, SpO2 and sleep state, with trend options, including apnea/hypopnea, SpO2/desaturation, sleep stage, CPAP, carbon dioxide and heart rate. Audio and video can be played or displayed remotely from either acquisition system. Key information can also be provided on a Live View Panel at the local nurse’s station for additional oversight.
