Tech ID: 19265 / UC Case 2007-804-0

Technology Description

This is a unique algorithm presented on a Grading Sheet which can be used to calculate the hepatic encephalopathy grade. The clinical assessments of the patients are performed according to commonly available clinical grading tables and the results are recorded on the HESA Grading Sheet. Next, the neuropsychological assessments are administered and the cognitive results recorded. To determine the final HE grade, one starts at the top of the grading sheet and proceeds downward until the appropriate grade is found.
