Continuous Electroencephalography in ICU
The Amplitude Integrated Electroencephalogram (aEEG) constitutes in a Continuous Brain Monitoring at the bedside, real time, and non-invasive.
Continuous Electroencephalography in ICU (aEEG/EEG)
Clinical Studies demonstrate the importance and clinical applicability of continuous EEG in the NICU. This technique allows to monitor the brain function and screen for seizure in newborns with perinatal asphyxia / Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy, prematurity, stroke and seizures.
Abnormalities visualized in the background activity are related to brain injury in acute and chronic stages. They can be interpreted in real time, allowiniga much faster and more assertive actions in relation to the current clinical scenario .
We also work with the amplitude integrated EEG (aEEG). The association of 2 or more channels for monitoring – video image and raw EEG tracing – increases the sensitivity and specificity of this method for detecting seizures.The association between the use of aEEG and continuous EEG within the ICU is an interesting practice in the continuous assessment of newborns at high risk for brain injury.
