Teaches the proper interpretation of neonatal aEEG tracings. Uses examples of normal and abnormal aEEGs. Provides complete technical instruction on continuous aEEG monitoring. An Atlas of Amplitude-Integrated EEGs in the Newborn is the first clinical atlas-textbook on interpreting Cerebral Function Monitor (CFM) tracings, a simplified method of continuous amplitude-integrated EEG (aEEG) monitoring increasingly used in neonatal units. The authors are pioneers on the aEEG method and have shown that severely ill newborn infants may suffer from repeated subclinical seizures that can only be diagnosed with continuous EEG monitoring. These experts have received worldwide attention for their demonstrations of the accurate prognostic ability of very early aEEG (CFM) recordings in newborn infants. Using illustrations of aEEG tracings, the atlas shows and discusses the difference between aEEG tracings in the healthy and at risk neonate, including developmental changes from the premature to the full-term period. The chapters illustrate tracings in normal infants, effects of medications, seizures, birth asphyxia, intracranial hemorrhages including intraventricular hemorrhages and periventricular leukomalacia, metabolic diseases, congenital malformations and other conditions. This large-format atlas provides you with a collection of mainly previously unpublished aEEG tracings by leading specialists in the field, bibliographic references, and an index. These features combined with its expert instruction on the technical aspects of continuous aEEG monitoring in premature as well as full-term infants make An Atlas of Amplitude-Integrated EEGs in the Newborn an essential clinical reference for all neonatal units.
