An easy-to-use, state-of-the-art system for long term EEG monitoring
Neurosurgeons, neurologists and nurses know they can rely on Xltek equipment for continuous video EEG monitoring. This foundation of quality extends into our next-generation, computer-assisted LTM solution.
Innovation is in our system
The new Natus Quantum™ 256-channel amplifier is a quantum leap in technology for advanced epilepsy monitoring and research. It offers software controlled Digital Switch Matrix (DSM) to facilitate functional brain mapping by allowing the use of recording electrodes for stimulus delivery through an external cortical stimulator. A synchronized visual representation of the stimulation results is displayed on the study record. Integration of the unique Stellate GridView™ drastically simplifies the correlating of EEG patterns with electrodes on a 3D MRI / CT image, providing intuitive visualization and annotation of intracranial recordings.
Using Data-Stream Wizard (DSW) researchers can seamlessly initiate recording of a high sample data stream which will contain all clinical review notes throughout the studies clinical lifecycle prior to exporting to a research project for further analysis.
Continuous monitoring even when the patient unplugs
Big capabilities come in small packages. Xltek presents a range of advanced amplifiers perfectly suited to meet your needs: from routine EEG applications and long term epilepsy monitoring to intracranial studies. Despite their advanced features, the amplifiers are compact and lightweight, making them very comfortable for the patient to wear.
Signal is processed and digitized inside the amplifier to ensure superior quality with ultra low noise. Research users will appreciate fast sampling and the ability to receive a secondary data stream in real time. In conjunction with the powerful Natus NeuroWorks® software, Xltek’s LTM systems equip you with a smart and versatile solution for epilepsy monitoring while enhancing patient comfort and freedom.
Physical barriers are no barrier to this system
It is easy to implement neurological monitoring just by plugging Xltek's Ethernet connectable amplifiers into any network port. The same is true for TCP/IP streaming HD cameras that allow turning any room into a video EEG unit by utilizing the hospital’s existing network. A wide range of configuration options includes wall and ceiling mounted dual video systems and some of the most compact portable carts in the industry. Sophisticated Natus NeuroWorks software provides continuous monitoring of a patient’s status, trends and patient event alarms, reporting it to an unlimited number of monitoring stations on the network. You can even monitor and review EEG with video from your home or remote office using the Citrix® Ready solution integrated with NeuroWorks. This operational flexibility improves continuity of care without confining you to one location.
The data stays secure
The small Xltek EMU40EX breakout box with built-in wireless capability allows video EEG monitoring even when the patient disconnects from the main unit for daily care routines. And extended range wireless connectivity doesn’t sacrifice data quality with its 1 kHz sampling frequency. EEG data is recorded on flash memory in the wearable unit and uploaded when the patient plugs back in, guaranteeing no data is lost or compromised. Privacy compliance is assured through an XLSecurity layer that provides role-based access with Active Directory integration and records all data retrieval of sensitive patient information as required by federal HIPAA regulations. Ensure peace of mind by opting for encrypted systems.
Natus NeuroWorks Software
Smart Software facilitates insightful decisions
Natus NeuroWorks software simplifies the process of acquiring, analyzing, reviewing and managing studies with an intuitive user interface and several unique integration options included Persyst®, Channel Labeler and Stellate GridView. Built-in productivity tools automatically mark and instantly prune data based on powerful Spike & Event detection algorithms, facilitating efficient study review. Integrated remote monitoring and review simplifies collaboration with a wide range of connectivity options suited to your infrastructure and needs.
NeuroWorks delivers the most user-friendly workflow for large sites with multiple users and stations, such as synchronizing user preferences and accessing studies from any networked station. Studies can be recorded directly to a local drive, networked computer or server, and organized and searchable on almost any database field.
Findings are more easily identified through easy collaboration
NeuroWorks’ built-in remote monitoring and review simplify consultations with users through the hospital network or over the internet. Integrated MS SQL Server, Citrix and Natus Datashare provide a range of collaboration options to suit your needs.
