This highly anticipated interactive course on Abnormal Neonatal EEG and Seizures gives an overview of abnormal EEG backgrounds and features, seizures, and various artifacts and EEG transients that can be misinterpreted as seizure or abnormal EEG. The Abnormal Neonatal EEG and Seizures course, which is a follow-up to the title Brain Monitoring: Normal Neonatal EEG, assumes you already have a basic knowledge of why EEG monitoring is used in neonates and how electrodes are applied. You must also be able to identify basic elements of EEG, recognize norms according to conceptional age and identify different background patterns, biobehavioral states and sleep cycles in neonatal EEG.
- 30 lessons on abnormal neonatal EEG and seizures
- 91 (52 new) patient cases with fully annotated EEG data samples

This course assumes you already have a basic knowledge of why EEG monitoring is used in neonates and how electrodes are applied. You must also be able to identify basic elements of EEG, recognize norms according to conceptional age and identify different background patterns, biobehavioral states and sleep cycles in neonatal EEG.
With this course you will be able to:
- Identify abnormal features of neonatal EEG including abnormal voltage, asynchrony, and dysmaturity
- Recognize abnormal sharp waves
- Recognize seizure characteristics
- Differentiate seizures from seizure-mimics such as artifacts
- Develop an approach for seizure recognition at the bedside
This course is not designed to be a diagnostic tool, or an atlas of all EEG features, nor is it designed to replace consultation by a qualified pediatric neurologist. This course will help neonatal caregivers better understand the value of EEG monitoring for neonates and make better informed decisions at the bedside.
Brain Monitoring is a collection of interactive educational courses focused on selected topics in both neonatal and adult neurological monitoring provided by Moberg Multimedia.
