Nihon Kohden, a provider of medical instrumentation solutions, has commercially launched Live View Panel, a virtual care system that allows for simultaneous remote neuromonitoring of patients in real time from a centralized location.
Using Live View Panel, clinicians can customize multiple electroencephalography (EEG) or polysomnography (PSG) acquisition systems to gather data critical for each monitored patient. The information is displayed on a single, interactive control screen, with one-click access to clinically relevant information to help speed interpretation and improve outcomes.
According to the company, its goal is to facilitate integrated care delivery so that patients receive high-quality care regardless of their physical location. With Live View Panel, physicians in the neuroscience community can connect directly to patients wherever they are, improving access, and enhancing safety and clinician workflow.
Developed in collaboration with Cleveland Clinic, the Live View Panel is comprised 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. 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.
