Increased EEG delta frequency corresponds to chorioamnionitis-related brain injury.

We evaluated the impact of chorioamnionitis on the intrapartal EEG delta frequency in the non-anesthetized preterm sheep. 10 mg intra-amniotic LPS or saline were given 2 or 14 days before preterm birth at gestational day 125. Lambs were delivered by Caesarean section under local anesthesia. A 5-minute EEG depicted delta activity and amplitude, and the… CONTINUE READING
