Description - An Atlas of Amplitude-Integrated EEGs in the Newborn by Lena Hellstrom-Westas
"An Atlas of Amplitude-Integrated EEGs in the Newborn" will follow up from the 1st edition in this clinical atlas-textbook on interpreting Cerebral Function Monitor (CFM) tracings, its simplified method of continuous amplitude-integrated EEG (aEEG) monitoring increasingly used in neonatal units. Using illustrations of aEEG tracings, the atlas will show and discuss 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 will illustrate tracings in normal infants, effects of medications, seizures, birth asphyxia, intracranial hemorrhages including intraventric ular hemorrhages and periventricular leukomalacia, metabolic diseases, congenital malformations and other conditions. This large-format atlas provides you with a collection of mainly aEEG tracings by leading specialists in the field, bibliographic references, and an index.These features, alongside a CD-ROM of 20 aEEG traces, 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.
The second edition is thoroughly revised, as digital aEEG has now completely taken over from the analogue aEEG, which was used for all examples in the first edition. With digital aEEG it is now also possible to use two channel aEEG and to have the original EEG of these two channels available simultaneously. This has made the aEEG more reliable as all episodes suspected of ictal discharges, can now also be reviewed with the original raw EEG. Most of the examples used in the first edition have been replaced with new cases, recorded with one or two channel digital aEEG
