Low Impedance Needles for aEEG in the NICU
The PRO-E5 needles can be used to monitor brain function in the NICU for a longer period of time than in traditional EEGs. In traditional EEGs (short 30-60 minute assessments), many high-risk neonates have no seizures, but they may within 8 to 24 hours. This makes longer-term brain monitoring in newborns invaluable. These needles have proven to be great for helping detect and monitor seizures in aEEG, and for monitoring the effects on the brain of different treatments in neonates.
