    A preterm infant experienced pericardial tamponade due to a deep central line. During the event the patient was on neurological monitoring, ampli­tude integrated electroencephalogram , which demonstrated abnormal baseline activity during the point of cardiovascular collapse with improvement once intervention occurred with pericardiocentesis. The case highlights the value of neurological monitoring in acute hemodynamic instability.
