Moberg Research Employees Return Safely After Hurricane Sandy

Moberg Research shuttered its headquarters office early last week when a state of emergency was declared in Philadelphia and Pennsylvania as Hurricane Sandy reached the region. Monday, October 29 through Wednesday October 31, 2012, Moberg Research was one of more than 1.2 million statewide to lose power due to the severe weather. As a result, company phone lines and websites including www.cnstechnology.com, www.mobergresearch.com, and www.dayonemedical.com were temporarily unreachable.  However, employees were able to continue business remotely from safe locations, and Moberg Research’s headquarters reopened Thursday, November 1, 2012.

If you experience difficulty with our phone lines, please email us at cns-info@moberg.com. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Medica 2012: Moberg Research Prepares for the European Market
 
With the end of 2012 in sight, Moberg Research prepares to cross the Atlantic to venture into the European medical sector. From November 14th to 17th, Moberg Research heads to Düsseldorf, Germany to partake in the annual Medica Trade Fair, an event that, for more than forty years, has been a showcase for new technology that is the future of the medical industry.   

Medica is attended by over 100,000 persons from around the world and is the largest event for establishing distribution relationships and industry collaborations. Moberg Research is dedicated to staying at the forefront of these technological advances, strengthening its presence in the Americas, as well as entering the European market in 2013. For Moberg Research, Medica is an ideal opportunity to present its advanced neurological monitoring technology, the Component Neuromonitoring System, to the world.  If you plan to attend Medica, Moberg Research will be in the Pennsylvania Booth, Hall 16, Stand G-05, so please stop by!
 
Moberg Research Exhibits cEEG at AES
The American Epilepsy Society’s (AES) Annual Meeting will be held November 30 through December 4, 2012 in San Diego, California. This year, Moberg Research will exhibit the CNS Monitor’s unique ability to record continuous EEG integrated with physiology collected from other monitors. Built-in cEEG and multimodal monitoring capabilities make the CNS Monitor an ideal tool for the neuro ICU, where the prevalence of cEEG is rapidly expanding. Multimodal monitoring in the ICU setting has already begun to reveal correlations between seizure activity and changes in neurophysiology, including intracranial pressure, cerebral blood flow, brain oxygen and much more.  






 
Find Moberg Research at
Booth 633.

Moberg Research supports continued research in multimodal neuromonitoring with its line of CNS Technology, including the CNS Monitor and software tools for remote review, visualization and analysis. Moberg Research looks forward to the AES Annual Meeting’s updates on the advancements in the field of epilepsy and seizure disorders.

Notable Case Study
In 2011, a group from the Neurological Intensive Care Unit at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York published a case study that shows a strong correlation between seizure activity and an increase in ICP, a decrease in brain oxygen (PbtO2), an increase in brain temperature, and an increase in cerebral blood flow. At Columbia, the multimodal data was not assembled until several days after the event. With the CNS Monitor, the same displays can be created in real time at the bedside.
