The Pediatrix® TeleNeurology Program provides physicians and hospital partners with access to highly specialized, pediatric neurological care for babies and children in the NICU and other inpatient settings. Our board-certified, fellowship trained pediatric neurologists provide real-time remote EEG interpretations and consultation services to deliver high-quality and cost-effective care.
Our TeleNeurology program offers:
- Remote EEG reading, including CFM (aEEG), routine EEG and continuous video-EEG
- Neurological exam aided by appropriate video technology and bedside clinical staff
- Review of clinical data including laboratory and imaging findings
- Discussions with parents and other family members to explain the diagnosis, clinical course, neurologic treatments and prognosis
Conditions We Can Treat
Babies and children may present with a variety of neurological disorders due to either: (1) an intrinsic problem in the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves or muscles; or (2) a secondary problem associated with a systemic disorder.
We offer TeleNeurology consultations for a variety of neurological conditions including:
- Refractory headache
- Abnormal imaging such as MRI and head CT
- Hypotonia or hypertonia
- Microcephaly or macrocephaly
- Congenital brain malformations
- Disorders of the peripheral nerves and/or muscles
- Nonsurgical management of brain injury and intracranial mass
- Neurologic complications of systemic diseases
Therapeutic Hypothermia Support
Our TeleNeurology Program specializes in the optimal treatment of newborns undergoing therapeutic hypothermia for presumed hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy. Our neurologist works closely with neonatologists and NICU staff to provide the best possible neurologic and developmental outcomes.
