We studied the effect of preterm birth on electroencephalographic background activity in 20 infants < 32 weeks' gestation. Six infants developed periventricular-intraventricular hemorrhage during the study period. Four-channel 24-h cassette recordings were obtained on day 1, 3-5 and 7-9. For each of the 24-h recordings, the percentage of the time showing stage I (continuous activity), stage II (mixed activity) and stage III (discontinuous activity) epochs was calculated. In infants without… CONTINUE READING
