Cerenion C-Trend® featured in an article investigating sleep quality of intensive care patients
Cerenion C-Trend® was used in a scientific article entitled "Monitoring of nighttime EEG slow‐wave activity during dexmedetomidine infusion in patients with hyperactive ICU delirium: An observational pilot study" recently published in Acta Anaesthesiologica Scandinavica.
The disturbance of especially deep stages of sleep have been associated with intensive care unit (ICU) delirium, which is a sever condition of brain dysfunction associated with e.g. prolonged hospitalization, higher mortality, and long-term cognitive impairment. Monitoring and improving the sleep quality in the ICU potentially reduces the risk of delirium. In the published pilot study, C-Trend® was used for objective evaluation of slow-wave activity, an EEG feature occurring during deep sleep, in ICU patients diagnosed with hyperactive delirium. The study confirmed previous findings of poor sleep quality in these patients and emphasized the necessity of objective sleep evaluation during intensive care.
The study was carried out in collaboration with Oulu University Hospital and University of Oulu and is available as open access at: https://doi.org/10.1111/aas.14131.
