Event Overview
Welcome message:

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 for brain growth and brain injury both in term and preterm infants.

Although the aEEG technology has been available for years, it has been underutilized. Additionally, neuroimaging modalities are performed and interpreted only by specialized radiologists. 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 it into clinical practice. This workshop will also provide the basic knowledge needed to interpret neonatal HUS and MRI and their applications in neonates.


Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

1. Identify how aEEG tracing is processed, and the difference between aEEG and 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 findingss

7. Recognize the variable clinical applications of head ultrasound and brain MRI in preterm and term neonates


This activity is intended for Neonatal Intensive Care Physicians (Neonatologists and Neurologists), Fellows, Nurses and Allied Health Professionals.
