DURING THIS FREE WEBINAR YOU WILL LEARN:
Although the clinical examination is still one of the best ways to assess the neurological status of any patient, new technologies have evolved from the arena of clinical research to the bedside of NICU's around the globe.
Bedside brain monitors are useful for measuring both brain function and brain perfusion and the two most popular devices are amplitude-integrated EEG (aEEG) and near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS).
In this one hour webinar, Kathi will share the state of the science on how and when to use these devices and how to set up a bedside brain monitoring program and divide the roles in your NICU.
Describe the features of an ideal bedside brain monitor
Discuss three roles that nurses can assume related to bedside brain monitors
List two or more populations that should be monitored with aEEG or NIRS
Identify normal values for NIRS and aEEG
