Disposable EEG Cup Electrodes

Product Overview

Why use disposable EEG Cup Electrodes?

The largest ever class-action settlement against a doctor in Canada was due to an outpatient EEG lab where both subdermal and gold disk electrodes were used.1  Hundreds of cases of HBV were acquired from 1990 -1996.

This important study was followed by the settlement of a class action lawsuit (Anderson et al. v. Wilson et al. 1998)² involving an epidemic outbreak of hepatitis B (HBV) attributed to six outpatient EEG clinics all owned and operated by the same physician and chief technician. The largest outbreak of hepatitis B in history was due to an outpatient EEG lab where both subdermal and gold disk electrodes were used. 14,000 cases of HBV were acquired from 1991 to 1996, one resulting in death within that time period.

The high cost of HAIs

In 2002, approximately 1.7 million hospitalized patients developed a healthcareassociated infection. HAIs are associated with nearly 100,000 deaths annually in US Hospitals, and result in $4.5 - $6.5 billion in extra costs annually.³
