Society Guidelines for Seizure Management in Critical and Emergency Care

“EEG should be initiated
within 15-60 minutes of suspected Status Epilepticus
in all patients.”

“EEG should be promptly performed and interpreted for the diagnosis of seizures in all comatose patients after ROSC.

“Consider rapid EEG with disposable, single use caps
to reduce staff exposure and conserve PPE.

With Ceribell, any bedside clinician can set-up EEG monitoring for seizure triage in minutes

Automatic monitoring and alert in a pocket-size recorder
• 30-seconds to spot check for seizure with 96% accuracy
• Automatic EEG monitoring to rule-out seizure with 99% accuracy
• Automatic alert when EEG is consistent with status epilepticus

5-minute set-up with the EEG headband by any clinicians

AHA Guidelines

2020 Adult Post-cardiac Arrest Care Algorithm*

“Many cardiac arrest patients who survive the initial event will eventually die because of withdrawal of life-sustaining treatment in the setting of neurological injury… Thus, much of post-arrest care focuses on mitigating injury to the brain.”*

Recommendations
Technologist Safety and Staffing in COVID1954

“Consider rapid EEG application methods (e.g, use of caps, templates and devices), some of which can be applied by staff who already need to enter the patient’s room (e.g., nurses). This will reduce the number of exposed staff and conserve PPE.
