    Basics of aEEG

    Instructor: Teresa Boone, RN | Director – Global Education Natus Medical Incorporated

    215 STUDENTS ENROLLED

    Course Overview:

    aEEG has become a standard bedside tool in many hospitals for monitoring the brains of infants with HIE undergoing therapeutic hypothermia and many other neurologic conditions, especially where seizures are suspected.

    Successful trace interpretation is crucial to aEEG success.  Similar to an EKG monitor that displays the electrical contractility of the heart, aEEG produces traces mapping the electrical impulses of the brain.  Interpretation is based on specific pattern criteria including the upper/lower margins, presence or absence of sleep wake cycles, and presence or absence of seizure activity.

    Objectives:

    Upon completion of this program, the nurse will be able to:

    • Describe components in transitioning raw EEG into aEEG
    • Describe the aEEG trace nomenclature and qualifications for both term and premature babies
    • Assess aEEG trace patterns and apply trace nomenclature/qualifications to define aEEG background patterns
    • Assess aEEG trace patterns and apply trace qualifications for areas of suspicion/suspected seizures
    • Utilize the raw EEG to validate the aEEG trace
    • Describe how artifact and/or impedance may impact trace purity

    1. The course was easy to navigate but I am having trouble printing the certificate

    2. Very clear, focused on basic patterns and basic artefacts seen in daily practice. One area not mentioned and would be also helpful would be aEEG and common medication used, i.e. intubation drugs or morphine for cooling babies

    3. not user friendly, very hard to navigate around!

    4. This site is ridiculous to navigate. It is not user friendly at all.

    5. The power point was very informative and helped me better understand the aEEG readings
