Quotes

"Many doctors and patients want that aggressive treatment. We want to be reasonable about this, but we also have to have some evidence. … It's not just quantity of life, which is very important, but if we're going to give aggressive therapies, with potential quality-of-life disturbances, we need to make sure that's balanced with a survival benefit. We can give a lot of aggressive therapy, but if it doesn't translate to survival benefit, we've given a lot of aggressive therapy with cost, side effects and trouble for the patient."
"We've seen the potential of the machine and we're convinced it works," Murkin said. "If you don't know what's going on in the brain, you can't help. But … if you can monitor in real time, you can act in real time."
"While the device can alert you to potential problems, the next part is what are you going to do about it? You still need to act," he said. "We want to start looking at what are some of the therapeutic interventions we can use to improve outcomes."
