In-Home EEG Options During COVID-19
EEG Alternatives to Hospital-Based Care
As hospitals and physician practices across the nation are taking extra care to protect patients during the COVID-19 pandemic, elective procedures are being canceled. In some instances, Epilepsy Monitoring Units and Neurodiagnostic Labs are limiting or suspending services. Public health officials are suggesting that people should stay home and practice social distancing to help slow the spread in the U.S. and other countries.
Healthcare providers around the globe are accelerating their adoption of remote monitoring capabilities in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. We have a tested solution available to protect seizure care patients when they are unable to visit hospitals. 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 (AEEG) 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/neuroscience appointments
- Improved comfort while using the device and less intrusive technology
Our EEG Service Provider partners use enhanced screening protocols to ensure the health and safety of their Registered EEG Technologists who perform the in-home set up, as well as pre-screening patients and family in the home.
Lifelines Neuro is a pioneer in AEEG, 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.
