A New View of Pupillary Examination: Providing Accurate, Objective, Reliable Results Using Automated Pupillometry
Information gained from pupillary assessment is used in decision-making regarding patient triage, diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis. For more than 100 years, clinicians have evaluated pupil size and reactivity to light in patients with brain injury or impaired consciousness to monitor neurological status and trends.1 Images of a physician or nurse shining a penlight into the eyes of a patient to assess pupil reactivity are universal.
NeurOptics® NPi® Pupillometers provide accurate, reliable and objective pupil size and reactivity data, independent of the examiner, to support neurological examination in adult and pediatric patients with brain injury across a broad spectrum of diagnoses. Patients with primary neurological diagnoses such as traumatic brain injury (TBI), stroke, or seizure, along with patients suffering neurological consequences after cardiac arrest, ECMO and other medical conditions can benefit from automated pupillometry.
An Automated Approach to Pupillary Evaluation
The New NPi®-300 Automated Pupillometer
Headquartered in Irvine, Calif., NeurOptics® is the leader in the science of pupillometry. Driven by a passion to help clinicians improve patient outcomes, NeurOptics develops and markets innovative technology for use in critical care medicine, neurology, neurosurgery, emergency medicine, and research. NeurOptics NPi® Pupillometers have been included in more than 70 clinical studies, adopted in over 560 hospitals in the United States, and are represented in more than 30 countries worldwide.
The clinical neurological exam is a cornerstone of providing care to patients with a wide variety of neurological injuries,2,3 and pupillary examination is a key component of this neurological assessment. Unlike manual pupillary evaluations using a penlight, NeurOptics NPi Pupillometers offer accurate and objective pupil data, resulting in a significant quality improvement for this important component of the neurological examination.
