Ives Imaging Friendly Electrodes

Ives CPE Image Friendly Electrodes

Ives CPE (Conductive Plastic Electrode)

Conductive Plastic Electrodes are reusable, composed of silver-silver/chloride impregnated plastic, with an adapter and harness, which permits quick, reliable, error-free disconnection and reconnection of the patient from the EEG machine. These electrodes are ideal for ICU and other long-term monitoring applications and are CT Imaging Friendly™

Harness
The harness matches the electrode array.  This connects the EEG electrodes to the head-box of any EEG machine via individual “touch-proof” connectors.  Thus the patient can be disconnected from the recording apparatus via the small mass connectors and then reconnected upon returning.  Since the patient’s electrode connectors are colour coded the disconnection/reconnection can be handled by nursing staff and not require the presence of an EEG technologist.

**Special order and requires longer lead-time.

Ives SWE Image Friendly Electrodes

Ives SWE (Subdermal Wire Electrode)

A new, unique, chronic EEG electrode specifically designed for use on comatose patients during cEEG recording in the ICU. This electrode is CT Imaging Friendly™.  Once placed the SWE will record with a low, steady impedance (5KΩ) for weeks/months on end as the SWE never needs adjusting or re-gelling.

EWA (Electrode Wire Adapters)
The Electrode Wire Adapters are used to connect the SWE’s directly to a standard headbox. A standard pack comes with 10 adapters to accommodate the 10/pack of SWE’s above.

SWE Adapter
An Adapter is used to connect from the individually placed SWEs to the Harness. Not a stocked item, lead time is required. (shown in picture)

**Special order and may require longer lead times.
