  • New England Neonatal aEEG and Neuroimaging Workshop

    November 8 – 9, 2017 | 7:30 a.m. – 5:45 p.m. The Joseph B. Martin Conference Center at Harvard Medical School 77 Avenue Louis Pasteur, Boston, MA 02115

    Course Description

    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.

    Course Objectives

    Upon completion of the workshop, participants should be able to:
    1. Identify how aEEG tracing is processed and the difference between aEEG and conventional electroencephalography (cEEG)
    2. Interpret and score aEEG tracing
    3. Describe the variable clinical applications of aEEG in preterm and term neonates
    4. Review the practical steps of applying the aEEG electrodes
    5. Assess the indications and limitations of neonatal neuroimaging
    6. Interpret basic neonatal HUS and MRI findings
    7. Recognize the variable clinical applications of head ultrasound and brain MRI in preterm and term neonates

    Target Audience

    Neonatal Intensive Care Physicians, Fellows, Nurses and Allied Health
