How does DeltaScan work?
Training is necessary before using DeltaScan. However, with just a minimal amount of practice, it becomes easy to use DeltaScan on patients. Within a few minutes (including application and removal of the DeltaScan Patch), you will have a clear outcome of the probability of delirium.

How often do I have to use DeltaScan?
DeltaScan has been specially developed for the detection and monitoring of delirium. According to the guidelines, it is recommended to conduct a DeltaScan measurement on every patient with a risk of delirium (preferably 3 times a day). This is the same guideline using DOSS and CAM-ICU.
What happens to the data after the DeltaScan measurement?
DeltaScan uses electroencephalography (EEG) to measure the patient’s brain activity. DeltaScan’s EEG registrations cannot be traced back to a specific patient as DeltaScan does not register patient data. With the hospital’s agreement, Prolira will collect measurement data for testing and further improvement of the DeltaScan algorithm.
Does the patient experience any discomfort from the electrodes on their face?
No, a measurement with DeltaScan is harmless and without any discomfort or pain. The patch is removed from the head immediately after a measurement.
What happens with outcomes data after a measurement with DeltaScan?
DeltaScan does not register any patient data such as patient number, age or sex. DeltaScan is a measurement of brain activity of the patient at a specific time using EEG. EEG’s recorded by DeltaScan can therefore never be traced back to a specific patient. With the hospital’s agreement, Prolira will collect measurement data for testing and further improvement the DeltaScan algorithm.
Which accessories come with DeltaScan?
DeltaScan comes mounted on a high-quality roll stand. In addition to the DeltaScan Monitor, we supply DeltaScan Patches, which are applied to the patient’s head. These patches are for single use.
Some additional supplies – recommended for optimal measurements with DeltaScan – are included in the price.
How many scans can I do with DeltaScan before it has to be recharged?
Depending on the intensity of usage of DeltaScan we advise the battery will need to be recharged at least twice a week. Although it is likely to last longer, we recommend to charge the battery every day.
