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.
Correct Preparation and application of electrodes is the key to gaining a successful aEEG recording in the NICU. Electrodes can be applied by any bedside caregiver trained in this technique.
This course will cover the essential fundamentals for positioning and application and/or insertion of Hydrogel, Low Impedance Needle and Gold Cup electrodes for limited channel aEEG monitoring, and guide users through basic troubleshooting techniques.
At the end of the presentation, the clinician will be able to:
• Describe different options for electrodes for aEEG monitoring in the NICU
• Demonstrate Hydrogel, Needle and Gold Cup electrode positioning, preparation and application
• Describe connecting electrodes to the Data Acquisition Box (DAB) and starting a recording
• Basic Troubleshooting with electrodes during aEEG Monitoring.
