DeltaScan Brain State Monitor for the diagnosis of acute encephalopathy and/or delirium
DeltaScan Brain State Monitor is a single-channel bedside electroencephalography (EEG) device that aims to determine whether a patient has acute encephalopathy and/or delirium. Health Technology Wales researchers searched for evidence on the use of EEG for the diagnosis of delirium focussing on single-channel EEG devices such as DeltaScan. HTW’s Assessment Group concluded not to progress this topic to full appraisal because the evidence on its use is still developing.
