Purpose: to investigate the efficacy of nootropic drug «Noofen» in the complex treatment of the bioelectric activity of the brain disorders among children recovering from an «out of hospital» pneumonia (OHP).

Patients and methods: there were observed 80 children aged 7–14 years, who were divided into primary (an additional intake of the drug «Noofen») and control (the standard treatment) groups.

An instrumental study was conducted on the first day of the temperature normalization and after a month from the drug «Noofen» application. Registration and recording of the brain action currents was made by means of electroencephalography. It was used a bipolar way of the biopotential diversion.

Results: children undergoing (OHP) for a long time had a violation of general condition and severe asthenia organism,that in the early recovery period is accompanied by a violation of the bioelectric activity of the brain. The typical signs of pathological disorders in the electroencephalogram are the reducing of the amplitude characteristics of a-rhythm, the gradual replacement of the alpha rhythm power on the theta and delta waves power, smoothing zone differences, the emergence of an individual and group pointed potentials, the generalized discharges and desynchronization of the background activity, bilaterally-synchronous high-amplitude polyspike wave discharges during hyperventilation. Inclusion the drug «Noofen» in the treatment scheme leads to the positive changes in the alpha rhythm structure, improving its modulation and zonal distribution, reducing the frequency of peak forms of alpha and beta oscillations.

Conclusions: the «Noofen» helps to optimize (OHP) treatment, faster to achieve the normalization of the clinical and functional parameters, to reduce the appearance of focal and paroxysmal disorders, to normalize brain bioelectrical activity, to improve the physical condition and adaptation properties and body stress resistance.
