Background:This study tested if measures of central nervous system (CNS) immaturity reflected by amplitude integrated electroencephalogram (aEEG) and associated clinical morbidities are determinants of length of hospitalization among late preterm infants born at 34 wk.Methods:This was a prospective cohort study of infants with a gestational age of 34 wk 0–6 d who had a single aEEG recording acquired over 6 h in a neonatal intensive care unit within 72 h of birth (n = 80). Infants were followed… CONTINUE READING
