Seizures are an Emergency
Seizures in the neonatal period are relatively common according to the international literature and the presence of neonatal seizures is known to be a powerful predictor of long-term cognitive and developmental impairment.
“Electroencephalography (EEG) provides useful information about neonatal brain health and prognosis.”

The ICU challenge – inspiring modern technology to do better!
The point of care has evolved with modern technology and today aEEG is widely used in the NICU and has become a standard of care in many places.
Access to EEG specialists for the setup and analysis is a great challenge in most NICUs. The challenge has inspired Lifelines iEEG in the development of our pioneering solution for the NICU so that we now provide a simple to use, bedside EEG brain monitor – yet a comprehensive EEG recording device, utilizing new and modern technology for the benefit of the patient.
- Intuitive software guiding the user through the workflow
- Easy setup of electrodes
- Dedicated NICU trends to facilitate basic understanding of EEG data – aEEG and Burst Suppression
- iEEG Cloud Services to facilitate the consulting of specialists remotely
Monitoring the brain is not new – but it has improved!
EEG has proven to be an efficient way of monitoring brain function in neonates. Monitoring brain function has a prognostic value and is a reliable instrument in decisions making in the NICU according to the IFCN Guidelines for Neonatal-EEG.
Over the last years, neonatologists and neurologist have gained a considerable knowledge about the newborn brain and neonatal seizures using amplitude integrated EEG (aEEG).
