What is cognitive impairment screening and why is it important?
Early detection of cognitive impairment is important to help healthcare providers identify and treat underlying conditions. Cognitive impairment causes can include a variety of underlying health conditions, medication side effects, vitamin deficiencies, and other circumstances. Cognitive impairment screening tools measure a variety of brain processes by asking the patient to answer a series of questions and/or complete specific tasks. They paint a picture of patients’ cognitive status in order to identify the presence of cognitive impairments and determine if further evaluation is needed.
What are common cognitive impairment symptoms?
Cognitive impairment symptoms may be mild in the early stages of a cognitive disorder but can steadily progress and become an interference to daily life. It’s important to identify cognitive impairments early on so the underlying cause(s) can be treated.

How does Coronavirus (COVID-19) affect the brain?
Worldwide patient data shows that patients with COVID-19 experienced a variety of symptoms related to the brain including:
- Loss of consciousness
- Trouble focusing
