Abstract

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is a modified form of heart/lung bypass therapy utilized in the full-term infant with life-threatening respiratory failure. The risks of ECMO, including intracranial hemorrhages and their subsequent effects, make it important to check the condition of brain function before, during, and after ECMO therapy. Therefore, serial EEG recordings are necessary for these patients. Knowledge of EEG recording techniques in this population as well as neonatal respiratory physiology is a requirement for the neurodiagnostic technologist faced with recording EEGs from these infants.
