aEEG has an established place in the use with HIE infants and those undergoing therapeutic hypothermia, but as of today, the monitoring of preterm infants is not routine. As the limits of viability are pushed back, and clinicians are challenged every day with caring for lower gestation age infants, understanding the evolving maturation of the neonatal brain is an important aspect of Neonatal Care in order to help optimise outcomes for Extremely Low Gestational Age infants. aEEG is a technique that has been successfully utilised to help to predict the long term outcomes of infants in the NICU, and this method is also applied to the preterm population.
This course is designed to help clinicians interpret the aEEG of preterm infants at the bedside
At the end of the presentation, the clinician will be able to:
- Describe aEEG as a monitoring tool in the Preterm Population
- Discuss how to interpret the aEEG trace in preterm infants
- Discuss clinical applications of aEEG in the preterm population
