Indiana University Health Neuroscience is home to the nation's only 24/7, real-time continuous neuromonitoring facility. While other hospitals provide recorded neuromonitoring, IU Health Neuroscience is the only program in the country with 24-hour monitoring done by onsite neurodiagnostic specialists.
Continuous monitoring allows for faster, more accurate diagnoses, as well as real-time observation of a medication’s effectiveness. If a patient does not respond to treatment, doctors can immediately adjust the medication. Continuous neuromonitoring is especially important for critically ill patients, as it allows doctors to respond to changes in a patient’s condition and provide immediate treatment. For example, patients who are in a coma or heavily sedated may suffer a silent seizure, which does not cause any visibly physical symptoms, but can have devastating neurological effects.
IU Health Neuroscience provides continuous neuromonitoring for evaluation and treatment of a variety of neurological conditions, including:
- Altered mental status
- Anoxic brain injury
- Brain aneurysm/bleed
- Coma after cardiac arrest
- Metabolic coma
- Traumatic brain injury
