Oulu, Finland, October 11, 2018 – Bittium together with Cerenion exhibit their innovative products and solutions for intensive care and neurology at the 31st annual congress of the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine (ESICM Lives 2018) on October 21-24 in Paris, France. The annual congress holds a premier spot as the meeting place for medical professionals and industry in the field of intensive care medicine. The congress, consisting of a strong scientific program, a well-attended industry exhibition and a range of training sessions is expected to again attract an audience of over 6,000 physicians, anesthetists, trainees and nursing and allied health professionals from around 100 countries all across the world.

At the event Bittium and Cerenion will present a comprehensive solution being developed in collaboration for monitoring the electrical activity of the brain (EEG) of intensive care patients. This is done by combining Bittium BrainStatus™, a wireless EEG-monitoring device designed for monitoring real-time electrical brain activity, with Cerenion’s innovative C-Trend™ analysis that helps to interpret the brain function of intensive care patients using one simple C-Trend™ Index, which is easy to follow. The purpose of the solution is to ease and speed up the work of the nursing staff at the intensive care unit.

Products and solutions exhibited at the event are:

  • Bittium BrainStatus is a wireless compact EEG amplifier, which is used together with a disposable easy and quick to wear Bittium BrainStatus electrode headband for example to diagnose epileptic seizures and brain stroke. Bittium BrainStatus enables quick measurement in field conditions as well as in hospitals, thus making the treatment process of the patient faster. Bittium BrainStatus can be used for wireless real-time remote EEG monitoring or data can be recorded to the device memory.
  • Bittium BrainStatus with Cerenion C-Trend is the world’s first practical method for measuring the brain function of intensive care patients. C-Trend technology aims to reveal the status of the brain as one simple and easy to interpret score. Bittium BrainStatus measures and monitors the brains EEG signal and C-Trend interprets the signal to a simple score by using advanced machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence.
