DirectLink™ ICP Module

Division: Codman Neuro
Category: Neuro Critical Care

The DirectLink™ ICP Module is an easy to use cost-effective solution to monitor Intracranial Pressure (ICP). The module is connected directly to a patient bedside monitor in order to display the patient’s ICP value. Connecting an implantable ICP sensor directly to the hospital patient bedside monitoring system eliminates the need for a stand-alone ICP monitor enabling ICP data to be stored in an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system. The DirectLink ICP Module allows a user to connect and calibrate to a patient bedside monitor, connect to and zero an ICP sensor prior to implantation, and allows for the patient to be disconnected and reconnected to the patient bedside monitor during routine clinical care events such as transport for imaging.

Indications for Use

The intended use of the DIRECTLINK ICP Module is to enable the connection of Codman intracranial pressure sensors to an available invasive blood pressure input channel on select commercially available third party patient bedside monitor systems.
