NDT 135   Pediatric Neurodiagnostic Technology I* (5 Hours)

Prerequisites : Admission to the Neurodiagnostic Program.

Corequisites: NDT 125 and NDT 130.

This course will discuss pediatric terminology as it relates to the Neurodiagnostic Technology (NDT) field. Students will study the development of the brain from premature infants to older children and its correlations on the electroencephalogram (EEG). Students will learn to assess pediatric electrographic activity in a variety of ranges including pediatric EEG variants, normal and abnormal categories, as well as seizure patterns. In the lab students will develop the skills necessary for accurate electrode placement and application on pediatric patients. A variety of learning activities will allow students to perform an EEG in the lab prior to performing an EEG in the clinical setting. Course instruction will occur using a blended approach that focuses on active engagement of the student in the classroom and simulated lab setting.
