Amplitude-integrated electroencephalography (aEEG) is an important tool for continuous monitoring of brain function, sleep wake cycling, and instantaneous detection of electrographic seizures. aEEG monitoring plays an important role in monitoring neonates with encephalopathy, neonatal seizures, and extremely premature infants. In addition, neuroimaging, including head ultrasound (HUS) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), are able to delineate brain structures and evaluate brain growth and brain injury both in term and preterm infants.
The New England Neonatal aEEG and Neuroimaging Workshop will educate medical providers (physicians, trainees, and nurses) about the technology of neonatal aEEG as well as how to interpret and incorporate the tool into clinical practice. This workshop will also provide the basic knowledge needed to interpret neonatal HUS and MRI and their applications in neonates.
