WE ARE COMMITTED TO STROKE PREVENTION
NATUS Transcranial Doppler systems are important clinical tools that enable clinicians world-wide to screen and diagnose stroke.

Impact of a Stroke

  • An estimated 1.6 million Canadians are living with heart disease or the effects of a stroke.
  • 1.3 million Canadians are living with heart disease.
  • More than 400,000 Canadians are living with long-term stroke disability.
  • In 2011, more than 66,000 Canadians died from heart disease or stroke. That’s one person every 7 minutes.
    • In 2011, almost 14,000 Canadians died as the result of a heart attack.
    • In 2011, more than 13,000 Canadians died as the result of a stroke.
  • Each year more than 350,000 Canadians are hospitalized for heart disease or stroke.
    • In 2011, more than 305,000 Canadians were hospitalized for heart disease.
  • In 2011, more than 46,500 Canadians were hospitalized for stroke.


ADDRESS THE FULL RANGE OF CLINICAL APPLICATIONS WITH NATUS TCD PRODUCTS

  • Standard Diagnostic Evaluations - Protocol driven examination combined with superior sensitivity allows clinicians to focus on the patient and not the procedure. Add our DICOM connectivity solution to further increase productivity and decrease reporting errors.
  • Emboli Detection Monitoring - Combine our state of the art emboli detection algorithm with tools like Continuous SoundTrak, M-mode with Multigate Spectral displays and SoundTrak Display for superior emboli evaluation.
  • Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO) - TCD has been shown to be as accurate as TEE for screening for the presence of PFO, when using agitated saline or contrast agent. Expanded use for migraine with aura patients may be appropriate based on recent research related to PFO with stroke.
  • tPA Treatment for Stroke - Microembolic signals detected by TCD at the site of arterial obstruction, can indicate clot dissolution. Recent studies have shown that in patients with acute ischemic stroke, continuous TCD augments tPA induced arterial recanalization.
  • Vasospasm monitoring with Subarachnoid Hemorrhage - Establish a diagnosis of vasospasm before it becomes clinically symptomatic and follow its course and response to treatment.
  • Sickle Cell Disease - Detect and follow intracranial stenosis and time transfusion therapy to decrease incidence of stroke in children diagnosed with Sickle Cell Disease.
  • Monitoring during Surgery - Reduce the risk of perioperative stroke by expanding your monitoring during vascular surgeries where significant flow changes and emboli can result in poor patient outcomes.
  • Interventional Procedures - Use TCD monitoring for vascular interventional procedures such as Carotid Stent Placement or Test Balloon Occlusion where emboli or flow changes may impact patient outcomes.
  • Per-operative Assessment of High-risk Cardiovascular patients - Vasomotor reactivity evaluation in addition to a complete diagnostic TCD exam will help identify patients with an increased risk of stroke.
  • Cerebral Circulatory Arrest - TCD detection of persistent cerebral circulatory arrest can be used as a confirmatory test for brain damage
