There are, however, a few small studies that attempted to identify a threshold Thompson score which predicted an abnormal aEEG
or an adverse outcome.
Onsite echocardiography (57%) and electroencephalography/amplitudeintegrated electroencephalography(EEG/ aEEG
) (69%) were widely available, with various other modalities less available: central venous pressure (CVP) monitoring (40%), perfusion index (5%), and nearinfrared spectroscopy (NIRS) (4%).

While a normal aEEG
record in the first 6 hours of life indicates a high probability of normal outcome, the results should be interpreted with caution as they can still be associated with poor outcome if features of encephalopathy exist.

The classical EEG or aEEG
not only can confirm the severity of HIE and monitor subclinical seizures, but also redirect diagnostics.
is used for routine neurological care in the neonatal unit.
In the patients who were evaluated further, amplitude integrated electroencephalogram (aEEG
) (Brainz, Natus medical, San Carlos, CA, USA) was recorded if one of the findings including lack of sucking, hypotonia, abnormal reflex (abnormal pupillary response to light) or seizure was present in addition to lethargy, stupor or coma which are signs of moderate or severe encephalopathy.
characteristics and visual cognitive function of children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
 Moreover, safety concerns regarding the use of morphine for premedication in preterm infants have been raised, as it has been associated with prolonged amplified electroencephalography (aEEG
) depression, independent of blood pressure changes.
