Improving the effectiveness of aEEG monitoring: a novel CFM observation chart and a care bundle approach
Cerebral function monitoring (CFM) has become standard practice in monitoring infants with suspected encephalopathy in the UK, yet there are no standard recommendations of practice to ensure that continuous amplitude-integrated electroencephalography (aEEG) is as regularly monitored as other parameters in the neonatal intensive care setting. In this article, we present a simple intervention combining human factor principles and quality improvement (QI) methods to ensure regular timely review and documentation to improve the effectiveness of aEEG monitoring with a clear process of escalating concerns.
