New Study Suggests That Masimo SedLine® Brain Function Monitoring May Aid Early Identification of Patients at Risk of Developing Postoperative Delirium

NEUCHATEL, Switzerland — Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) today announced the findings of a prospective study published in Anesthesia & Analgesia in which Dr. Claudia Spies and colleagues investigated the relationship between parameters derived from electroencephalogram (EEG) spectra, measured using Masimo SedLine® Brain Function Monitoring, and postoperative delirium (POD) in older patients undergoing elective surgery. The researchers found that the incidence of POD correlated with several spectral dynamics, in particular spectral edge frequency (SEF), suggesting that such EEG-based markers may help in early identification of patients at risk of developing POD.1Read More
