Staff from all Dutch hospitals that participate in CLEO (Clinical Evaluation of DeltaScan) gathered on 5 November 2019 @ UMC Utrecht, to practise using DeltaScan, in preparation of the start of the intervention phase of CLEO, in which DeltaScan will be used to daily detect and monitor delirium in their patients.

To make a short & clear 3 minute instruction movie ‘how to use DeltaScan’ took us nearly 6 hours of filming in the ICU. But thanks to the help of caring and bright nurse Pauline and our very patient patient it worked out really well. The movie is now available in several languages and part of the e-learning “DeltaScan”.
The Dutch Intensivists autumn congress on 12 September 2019 was a good place to talk about delirium care, as 50-80% of the patients in ICU’s get delirium. DeltaScan can be of great help to for early & more detection and objective monitoring.
In 2019, the annual congress of the European Delirium Association was held in Edinburgh. Prolira was sponsor and promoted DeltaScan.

University Medical Center Utrecht and company Prolira BV of the Netherlands have developed an innovative device to detect delirium. This mobile monitor, the Deltascan, measures within one minute whether a patient has a delirium. With a delirium, patients suddenly suffer from serious confusion due to a physical cause, such as an infection. One in eight hospital patients, especially the elderly and Intensive Care patients, will experience this.
DeltaScan in UMC Utrecht is the first medical device that shows the probability of delirium.
