    Thoroughly revised from analogue examples to digital examples using simultaneous dual channel EEG, An Atlas of Amplitude-Integrated EEGs in the Newborn is the definitive clinical atlas-textbook on interpreting Cerebral Function Monitor (CFM) tracings. This simplified method of continuous amplitude-integrated EEG (EEG) monitoring increasingly used in neonatal units is a safer, more reliable method.

    Clinicians will be guided effortlessly by illustrations of aEEG tracings, while the atlas discusses the difference between aEEG tracings in the healthy and at risk neonate.

    Chapters illustrate:

    1. Methodology. 2. The Electrocortical Background, Its Normal Maturation, Classification, and Effects of Medication. 3. Pitfalls and Caveats. 4. Seizures. 5. Hypoxia-ischemia. 6. Focal Hemorrhagic and Ischemic Lesions in the Full-term Infant 7. Hemorrhagic and Ischemic Lesions in the Preterm Infant.  8.
