You know, being a doctor might not necessarily be a glamorous job, unlike what you see on TV where the doctors there always have a fantastic day at work, and their colleagues are hot to boot. Well, in real life, things could very well be extremely different – case in point, physicians might have to decipher just how their patients are doing from very little information, no thanks to infrequent office visits from the patient. CareFusion thinks that they have the solution in the form of the Nicolet EEG Wireless Amplifier, where this device will be able to record all faint electrical signals in the brain, sending these results to your physician as long as the Nicolet remains within the vicinity of an Internet connection.
According to Chad Carlson, M.D., assistant professor of neurology at the New York University Langone Medical Center Comprehensive Epilepsy Center, “Wireless acquisition of EEG data gives patients admitted to the epilepsy monitoring unit greater freedom and comfort without risking loss of critical data due to disconnection of the amplifier. The ability to record up to 64 channels of EEG data at up to 12 kHz should allow for further advances in clinical EEG analysis and interpretation.” [Press Release]
