The goal of this course is to familiarize the Neurodiagnostic technologist with the best methods to perform neonatal and pediatric EEG procedures. There are special considerations related to patient rapport, electrode placement methods and the testing environment for these age groups. Terms used to describe the EEG of neonates and pediatric patients, as well as ways to recognize age-specific EEG patterns, is a major focus. Topics also include recording parameters for EEG, and other physiological variables that are necessary to identify patterns in these unique patient populations.
