Neonatal and Paediatric Neurophysiology is derived and updated from the hugely successful definitive text reference, Clinical Neurophysiology 2/e. Both publications have been prepared by experts of international renown, and follow a tradition of multidisciplinary team effort - with a strong foundation in neuroanatomy and neurophysiology, high standards of practical technological skills, as well as those deriving from considerable experience in the clinical neurosciences. This book is concerned with the specific technological and interpretative aspects of clinical neurophysiological recordings that are peculiar to the child from birth to adolescence. A general introduction details some general departmental procedures that are helpful when running a service for children. Methodology and maturational features for EEG, evoked potential and EMG investigations in infants and children are covered in the book. The chapters on the neurophysiology of the neonatal period and that of the child include a disease-orientated approach to the applications of the techniques. Some applications of evoked potentials and EMG, particular to these age groups, complete the coverage. Neonatal and Paediatric Clinical Neurophysiology provides a comprehensive guide for neonatologists, paediatric neurologists, clinical neurophysiologists and paediatricians. The book is also relevant to biomedical engineers involved in the design of equipment and to technicians.
Specifically tailored for neonatologists, paediatric neurologists, paediatricians, clinical neurophysiologists and the associated specialist technologists working with the relevant teams
Four-colour artworks and tables summarizing key aspects of information
