Course Information

Before we begin discussing the intricacies of Neonatal EEG, let’s begin with a brief review of just what an EEG is and what information can be obtained from these studies.

A polysomnogram consists of a simultaneous recording of multiple physiologic parameters related to sleep and wakefulness. The interaction of various organ systems during sleep and wakefulness also is evaluated.
