Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The contribution of early continuous four-channel EEG monitoring to the evaluation of intraventricular hemorrhage in acutely ill preterm infants mechanically ventilated for acute respiratory distress was assessed in a prospective study of 54 infants of less than 34 weeks' gestation. Early abnormal EEG results correlated significantly with later outcome. They often preceded ultrasound evidence of hemorrhage and provided prognostically significant functional correlation with the grade of hemorrhage. Continuous EEG monitoring allows collection of significant data with minimal interference and could contribute to clinical management of high-risk preterm infants.
