Clinics in Perinatology Brain Monitoring in the Neonate, An Issue of Clinics in Perinatology (The Clinics: Internal Medicine): Alan R. Spitzer, Robert White S2006-09-27 240 pages
The cardinal indicator of a satisfactory outcome for neonatal intensive care is normal neurological development, yet until very recently, clinical monitoring of brain function was limited to the physical examination. Recently, though, a number of new techniques have been developed to assist clinicians who wish to know more about the neurological status of their fragile patients. This issue explores various techniques of brain monitoring including continuous EEG, near-infrared spectroscopy, and biochemical markers, as well as articles intended to help clinicians respond appropriately to abnormalities and changes discovered during monitoring. This issue should appeal to physicians, nurses, therapists, and other members of the neonatal intensive care team.
