Olympic BrainZ Monitor
Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)Understanding an infant’s brain health is a critical part of your treatment decisions. Use of continuous Cerebral Function Monitoring provides vital information to clinicians to assist with earlier diagnosis and treatment — the Olympic Brainz Monitor is the optimal CFM solution for fast & simple routine bedside monitoring.
|The OBM Olympic BrainZ Monitor Monitor can be used to both detect and monitor the progress of brain injury resulting from hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE). This makes it ideal as a screening tool for neuroprotective strategies such as protective hypothermia.
The OBM can be used continuously over a period of days to highlight trending of brain function, to assist in the identification of seizures and to assess the effectiveness of anticonvulsant drugs given to treat them.

The OBM Olympic Brainz Monitor is the optimal Cerebral Function Monitor (CFM) solution for fast & simple routine bedside monitoring. .
The OBM Olympic BrainZ Monitor is a useful tool for monitoring brain status, identifying seizures and seeing the impact of clinical interventions on brain function within the PICU. It is currently being trialed in the area of paediatric cardiac surgery.
- 1-2-3 channels of aEEG and raw EEG
- Remote view
- scoring capability with customizable markers
The OBM Olympic Brainz Monitor provides aEEG (amplitude integrated EEG), real time EEG and continuous measurement of impedance in 1, 2, and up to 3 channel configurations. The kiosk style interface allows real time monitoring of brain function, providing vital data that may assist in predicting outcomes.
Clinical Usage of aEEG Monitoring
Medical literature reports that aEEG monitoring can be used to:
- Monitor general neurological status
- Monitor and record frequency and intensity of seizures to assist in the management of medical therapy
- Monitor during hypothermic treatment to measure the effectiveness of treatment2
- The time to normal trace (TTNT) has prognostic value and is a good predictor of neurodevelopment outcome in term infants with Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE) undergoing hypothermic treatment.
- Monitor aEEG patterns to indicate the presence of sleep wake cycling in preterm infants, which is associated with better outcomes in HIE patients and may add value in developmental care
- CFM Viewer software implements similar functionality to the bedside unit, permitting review & analysis of recorded CFM data on a personal computer
- Remote Consult & Review — offers remote viewing of active recordings from any location
- Allows remote consultation
- Provides remote review and annotation of patient recordings with marked events appearing at bedside
- Viewer runs on Windows® XP SP2+, Windows® Vista and Windows®
