In July 2012, Moberg Research staff traveled to San Jose, CA to complete the largest installation of the Component Neuromonitoring System (CNS) to date. Good Samaritan Hospital received 20 CNS Monitors to outfit each patient room of their new neuro ICU with multimodal monitoring and continuous EEG.
The Moberg team of experienced neuroscience nurses and technical personnel spent a week at the hospital to oversee installation and train approximately 70 nurses and other potential users of the CNS Monitors.
The nurses and physicians at Good Samaritan Hospital expressed their dedication to patient care by enthusiastically pursuing this innovation. One of the Moberg team members commented that the trainees were “one of the most exceptional groups of nurses that we have encountered.” Dr. Sachdev, an early advocate of the CNS Monitor, was quick to realize the potential benefits of displaying continuous EEG and neurological measurements at every ICU bed.
The CNS Monitor is just the first piece of the Component Neuromonitoring System to be implemented at Good Samaritan. Currently, Moberg Research is preparing to add components to their system which will allow clinicians to remotely review and perform analysis on integrated data from their CNS Monitors. As the needs of Good Samaritan’s neuro ICU change and expand, the Component Neuromonitoring System will adapt with them to meet their neuromonitoring needs.
