To assess functional cortical organization in newborns during quiet sleep we investigated instantaneous interhemispheric coherences in six healthy full-term subjects using linked ear reference and average reference. Tracé alternant was the most frequent EEG pattern during quiet sleep of these newborns and consists of burst and interburst periods. The… (More)
Age dependent EEG signatures were detected in the EEG of 71 neonates of 28-100 weeks of conceptional age (CA). Using the new method presented, neonates were automatically classified in three age groups (28-35 weeks CA), (36-40 weeks CA) and (41-100 weeks CA). Analysis was performed employing relative distance functions for the complete frequency spectra of… (More)
The definition of an electroencephalographic (EEG)-based brain dysmaturity index that could allow automatic detection of neonates who deviate from expected ontogenetic patterns is proposed. The investigation was performed in a group of 94 term and preterm infants (28-112 weeks postconceptional age). For each neonate, one continuous two-channel EEG of 1-6… (More)
OBJECTIVES A correlation between sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and apnea has been discussed in a variety of studies. We analyzed polysomnographic data in 51 infants and investigated correlations between the manifestation of apneas and changes in EEG pattern. METHODS Measurements were performed by means of the commercial polysomnographic device… (More)
BACKGROUND Peptide patterns of bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) were assumed to reflect the complex pathology of acute lung injury (ALI)/acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) better than clinical and inflammatory parameters and may be superior for outcome prediction. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS A training group of patients suffering from… (More)
