Continuous EEG monitoring is considered to be a sensitive indicator of changes in cerebral function. This paper describes a system for cotside display and analysis of EEG discontinuity and amplitude in one-minute epochs, with provision for simultaneous recording of the EEG. It has been successfully used to monitor continuously the EEGs of more than 30 babies in a neonatal intensive care unit for periods of up to nine days. This system rapidly provides indications of changes in cerebral function, which can allow early intervention and possible prevention of morbidity.
