In this special issue of the Neuroscience Monitor, we are featuring content on neonatal neurology in anticipation of the upcoming meeting, Brain Monitoring & Neuroprotection in the Newborn.
Good Samaritan Hospital Outfits Neuro ICU with CNS Monitors
In July 2012, Moberg Research staff traveled to San Jose, CA to complete the largest installation of the Component Neuromonitoring System (CNS) to date. Good Samaritan Hospital received 20 CNS Monitors to outfit each patient room of their new neuro ICU with multimodal monitoring and continuous EEG. The Moberg team of experienced neuroscience nurses and technical personnel spent a week at the hospital to oversee installation and train approximately 70 nurses and other potential users of the CNS Monitors.

The nurses and physicians at Good Samaritan Hospital expressed their dedication to patient care by enthusiastically pursuing this innovation. One of the Moberg team members commented that the trainees were “one of the most exceptional groups of nurses that we have encountered.” Dr. Sachdev, an early advocate of the CNS Monitor, was quick to realize the potential benefits of displaying continuous EEG and neurological measurements at every ICU bed.
In July 2012 Moberg Research installed 20 CNS Monitors and trained approximately 70 staff members at Good Samaritan Hospital.
The CNS Monitor is just the first piece of the Component Neuromonitoring System to be implemented at Good Samaritan. Currently, Moberg Research is preparing to add components to their system which will allow clinicians to remotely review and perform analysis on integrated data from their CNS Monitors. As the needs of Good Samaritan’s neuro ICU change and expand, the Component Neuromonitoring System will adapt with them to meet their neuromonitoring needs.
Look for future updates on the progress of Component Neuromonitoring System at Good Samaritan Hospital in later editions of The Neuroscience Monitor and at

Protecting the Neonatal Brain    

September 13 – 15, Moberg Research will be in Tampa, Florida for The 7th International Conference on Brain Monitoring & Neuroprotection in the Newborn. The meeting aims to educate attendees on state-of-the-art techniques for neonatal brain monitoring and hypothermia as neuroprotection. Moberg Research finds itself in the unique position of also hoping to bridge these two fields with advanced monitoring technology that integrates neurological data, including EEG (and aEEG) as well as measurements from temperature management devices. This international conference intends to translate the most current and significant research into practical applications for clinicians; Moberg Research intends to help by providing advanced neuromonitoring technology.

Interactive Neonatal EEG Course    
Dr. Robert Clancy and Dr. Courtney Wusthoff began working with Moberg Multimedia many years ago with the goal of providing much needed training on neonatal EEG. The result of their efforts is an interactive course that features over 60 lessons in neonatal EEG and over 50 cases of fully annotated EEG data samples. The content is enriched with multimedia, including animations and mini-quizzes, which provide the answers upon completion and do not penalize the learner. When viewing EEG cases, students can turn annotations on or off to assist with learning. Users can find lessons by topic using the index, or search the entire course–including the case library–by keyword.
The Moberg Multimedia team was honored to work with distinguished professionals to provide this unique, high quality educational aid. A demo video and details, including continuing education credits for nurses and ASET members, can be found on the Moberg Multimedia website.
