C109 - Case Studies: How to Analyze Spells by Video-EEG

Event Time: Monday April 24, 2017 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Topic(s): Epilepsy/Clinical Neurophysiology (EEG)
Director(s): Amy Crepeau MD
Description: Spells can be difficult to diagnosis in children and adults, as both epileptic and non-epileptic causes need to be considered. Video EEG is often necessary to provide a definitive diagnosis. This course will use a case-based approach to evaluating seizure semiology, and the differential diagnosis of seizure-like spells, using video EEG as a guide.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to understand the basic technical requirements for performing video EEG monitoring and indications for referring patients. In addition, they will be able to recognize various seizure semiological features that assist with localization, and outline non-epileptic seizure mimics.
CME Credits: 3
Core Competencies: Medical Knowledge, Patient Care, Practice-Based Learning and Improvement
