C126 - Critical Care EEG Monitoring

Event Time: Tuesday April 25, 2017 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): Epilepsy/Clinical Neurophysiology (EEG), Neuro Trauma, Critical Care, and Sports Neurology
Director(s): Aatif Husain MD
Description: This course will review important aspects of continuous EEG (cEEG) monitoring in critically ill patients. This will include a review of the frequency with which seizures are detected in this patient population. Additionally, faculty will present information about the appropriate patient type to monitor and how long to monitor. Interpretation of cEEG monitoring can be significantly different than interpreting other types of EEG data, and faculty will explain how to recognize artifacts and differentiate them from seizures, as this is a frequent source of errors and misinterpretation. The significance of many EEG patterns is uncertain in this patient population, and faculty will review this pattern and present nuanced interpretation of these patterns, as well as cover quantitative analysis programs frequently used in analyzing cEEG data along with various ways to evaluate cEEG data quantitatively.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to recognize appropriate patients who may benefit from cEEG monitoring, appreciate the nuanced interpretation of cEEG data and differentiate artifacts from cerebral activity, and recognize the value and limitations of quantitative analysis of cEEG and apply this to their practice settings.
