The 52 neonates in this study were divided into 3 groups: (1) BERDs only: 9 neonates, (2) BERDs + conventional EEG seizures: 11 babies, (3) Conventional EEG seizures only: 32 babies. We analyzed the BERDs and compared outcomes in the 3 groups: there was no significant difference in mortality and neurodevelopmental or background EEG… CONTINUE READING
