Official press release: The aEEG booklet
NIHON KOHDEN and Karl Florian Schettler presented a reference book about the amplitude-integrated EEG
It fits perfectly in every doctor`s pocket: „The aEEG booklet“, a practical reference book in a manageable paperbook format, that demonstrates the range of application and the possibilities of the amplitude-integrated EEG (aEEG) in a quick and concise manner. Together with Fumio Suzuki – President and COO of NIHON KOHDEN Corporation – the author Karl Florian Schettler presented his book in November 2011 at Medica in Düsseldorf. The book is with its unique handy size a perfect fill-in between practice and theory. On page 95 Schettler – who works as a pediatrician and neonatologist in Landshut near Munich – gives a quick overview of the functions and the range of application of the aEEG. The appliance shows the amplitude-information that is contained in a normal EEG in a time-compressed manner and is applied in the monitoring of newborn babies.
Though „The aEEG booklet“ is quite more than a quick help for medics and clinical expert staff, Karl Florian Schettler also demonstrates the multi-purposed options of the appliance in the field of neonatology. With the help of case studies, Schettler shows how valuable the method is for the monitoring of brain function of newborn babies. „My intention is to bring forward the aEEG method and to establish a neurological early-warning system“, says Schettler: „For instance with the aEEG physicians can early identify neurologic problems of premature infants“. Physicians can order the booklet at no charge in English or German version (German version available in February 2012) at NIHON KOHDEN EUROPE (www.nihonkohden.de). Japanese, French and Russian are in progress and will be available soon.
