eSeminar: Best Practices for Olympic Brainz Monitor


Best Practices for Olympic Brainz Monitor Electrode Preparation and Application

aEEG has become a standard bedside tool in many hospitals for monitoring cerebral function of infants with HIE undergoing therapeutic hypothermia and many other neurologic conditions, especially where seizures are suspected.

Correct preparation and application of electrodes is the key to gaining a successful aEEG recording in the NICU.

Electrodes can be applied by any bedside caregiver trained in this technique, and this eSeminar will explore the best practice in applying and managing aEEG electrodes.
