With such a high prevalence of neurological complications in neonates, effective Neonatal Brain Health Monitoring is essential

Arc provides accessible, dependable, real-time continuous EEG monitoring with video for use in neonatal intensive care (NICU). To enable Arc EEG to best serve you, we combined effective remote monitoring with durability and high quality data.

Arc offers two solutions for NICU EEG monitoring with video: Arc Essentia and Arc Apollo. Both can be cart-mounted or hardwired into a room, and both offer 32 channels of quality EEG.

Arc software’s Sentinel Monitoring allows you to remotely monitor multiple patients on one central computer, receive audible and visual event notifications, control cameras, enter events, and view and review EEG and video. 

Why use Arc EEG in the NICU?

EEG is the only real-time brain function parameter. Cadwell Arc EEG:

  • Is very sensitive for changes in brain function, hypoxia, and ischemia
  • Is inexpensive, especially compared to CT, MRI, and ICP
  • Is non-invasive, with no radiation or other risks
  • Can be monitored continuously for days or weeks
  • Is portable and can easily be moved between patients
  • Efficiently captures and delivers the data needed to enable detection of clinical and sub-clinical seizures, and to monitor seizure treatment   
  • Is the vital sign of the brain in the ICU


For accurately measuring, analyzing, and reporting brain function in the NICU, Arc EEG is useful for NICU staff, Neurophysiologists, and their most precious patients.

Who should we EEG? Anyone whose brain is at risk.

If a baby is in the NICU, then monitor that baby.

Arc EEG in the NICU may help determine and monitor:

  • Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE)
  • Seizures | Status Epilepticus
  • Preterm Infants
  • Low Apgar Score
  • Asphyxia
  • Intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH)
  • Intubated Infants
  • Epileptic Diagnosis and Treatment
  • Sepsis
  • Metabolic Diseases
  • Kernicterus
  • Comatose
  • Congenital Diseases | Especially Cardiac Anomalies
  • Surgical Recovery | Especially Post Cardiac
  • Brain Death Diagnosis

Arc lets you simplify ICU EEG

  • Use simple measurement tools like a headcap
  • Reduce the number of electrodes
  • Use intuitive, easy-to-learn with visual notifications
  • Customize Unlimited Study Types for specific NICU settings
  • Start the study in one click
  • Remotely monitor multiple patients with Sentinel Monitoring

Arc NICU brain health monitoring may detect a variety of issues:

  • Evaluate cerebral function
  • Identify clinical and sub-clinical neonatal seizures and monitor the effects of treatment
  • Reduce misdiagnoses of sub-clinical seizures
  • Provide early assessment of outcome following HIE, IVH or stroke
  • Provide early identification of pre-term brain injury
  • Provide early evaluation of cerebral maturation

“All preterm babies should be monitored and all asphyxiated term babies should be monitored at 12 – 24 – 72 hours, since this is the critical time in the baby’s life – seizures, HIE and IVH usually happen in the first three days.”
