EEG Alternatives to Hospital-Based Care
As hospitals and physician practices across the nation struggle to care for patients during the COVID-19 outbreak, elective procedures are being canceled. In some instances, Epilepsy Monitoring Units and Neurodiagnostic Labs are limiting or suspending services as well, and public health officials are now suggesting that treating people at home who do not have the virus could help slow the spread in the U.S. and other countries.
With healthcare providers around the globe looking for telemedicine alternatives in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, neurologists have a tested solution available to protect their seizure care patients.
Lifelines Neuro is working with our EEG Service Provider Partners to provide in-home continuous video EEG monitoring to help ease the burden of COVID-19 restrictions on inpatient and outpatient hospital admissions. Benefits of ambulatory EEG monitoring include:
- Frees up critical bed space in hospitals
- Reduces risk of COVID-19 transmission to patients
- Ensures the activities of daily living that trigger seizures are captured
- Captures the diagnosis now to provide a timeframe for future neurology/neurosurgery appointments
Our EEG Service Provider partners use enhanced screening protocols to ensure the health and safety of their Registered EEG Technologists who perform in-home EEG set up, as well as pre-screening patients and family in the home.
Lifelines Neuro is a pioneer in ambulatory EEG, with thousands of Trackit EEG systems used globally since 2001. With our Rendr Platform cloud EEG software, Lifelines makes physician review available 24/7/365 on multiple browsers and platforms - PCs, Mac, and tablets, with no software to download. Our EEG Service Providers, and the physicians they serve, rely on Lifelines Neuro EEG systems for hospital-quality EEG studies.
