Amplitude integrated EEG Monitoring in Sick Neonates Brief Project Description: Amplitude integrated EEG (aEEG) is a useful bedside tool for cerebral function monitoring of neonates with encephalopathy, seizure, cerebral malformations, meningitis, metabolic disorders and other cerebral pathologies. It allows continuous cerebral monitoring aiding in early diagnosis of cerebral dysfunction and or seizure and can be utilized to monitor response to treatment such as therapeutic hypothermia or antiepileptic agents. The application and interpretation of this device can be done by NICU care providers and medical personnel. B Braun Pumps Brief Description: Requesting funding for 8 B-Braun Syringe pumps. Almost all of the newborn babies we transport require IV maintenance fluids or medication infusions. Because of their small size, their IV fluids must be maintained at specific flow rates that are much lower than the rates used for larger children and adults. These pumps can be set at extremely low flow rates that ensure the babies get the fluids and medication doses that are appropriate for their weight.
