Transforming Critical Care

Cape Cod Healthcare offers Ceribell Rapid Response EEG, a new brain monitoring technology for the screening and triage of non-convulsive seizures. 

Seizures are common in critically ill patients, and early, accurate treatment is critical for optimal patient outcomes. However, non-convulsive seizures are often difficult to detect visually due to the lack of outward clinical signs. Although conventional electroencephalogram (EEG) is used to detect abnormalities in the electrical activity of the brain or brain waves, it is limited in the emergent and critical care settings as it does not provide prompt readings. Time is of the essence for these patients and without quick detection and subsequent treatment, prolonged non-convulsive seizures can lead to permanent brain injury, a higher morbidity risk and a longer hospital stay.

Innovative technology for optimal patient outcomes

Ceribell Rapid Response EEG is a new, leading-edge technology at Cape Cod Hospital that has transformed how our clinicians monitor and diagnose patients with non-convulsive seizures in our emergency department and intensive care unit, helping them to ensure timely, optimal care is provided for critically ill patients.

The Ceribell Rapid Response EEG system is comprised of a headband with integrated electrodes, a pocket-sized recorder with intuitive software and a HIPAA-compliant online portal for remote viewing, enabling EEG assessments within minutes. Unlike conventional EEG equipment to monitor brain vital signs, it is portable and offers prompt point-of-care monitoring.

The availability of Ceribell’s pioneering technology, close to home, is another example of how Cape Cod Healthcare is committed to delivering the highest quality care for our community.
