24/7 Real-Time Continuous Neuromonitoring

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
  • Encephalitis
  • Epilepsy
  • Meningitis
  • Metabolic coma
  • Sepsis
  • Stroke
  • Syncope
  • Traumatic brain injury
