C199 - Clinical EEG II: Focal, Diffuse, and Epileptiform Abnormalities in Adults

Event Time: Thursday April 27, 2017 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): Epilepsy/Clinical Neurophysiology (EEG)
Director(s): Susan Herman MD, FAAN
Description: This course provides a thorough review of the practice of clinical EEG, including routine EEG in adults and children, long-term ambulatory and video-EEG monitoring in epilepsy, and EEG in critically ill patients. In Clinical EEG II, faculty will discuss common indications for EEG studies, and the relative yield of different EEG types for diagnosis and management of epilepsy, encephalopathy, and coma. Topics will include EEG abnormalities caused by focal brain lesions, EEG in dementia and encephalopathy, techniques to increase the yield of epileptiform activity, identification of interictal and ictal epileptiform patterns, and EEG findings in common and uncommon epilepsy syndromes. Multiple examples of focal abnormalities, diffuse abnormalities, and interictal and ictal EEG patterns will be presented. The session will end with interactive review of unknown EEG samples. This program complements C188: Clinical EEG I: Normal EEG, Normal Variants, and How to Avoid Over-reading EEGs and C212: Clinical EEG III: Pediatric and Neonatal, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to appropriately order EEG studies in the diagnostic evaluation of neurologic disorders in adults, avoiding inappropriate use of EEG. Identify normal and abnormal EEG patterns in adults and the elderly; correctly interpret focal and diffuse EEG abnormalities in patients with epilepsy, focal brain disorders, and diffuse brain disorders; select the best EEG type in the diagnostic evaluation of epilepsy; identify interictal and ictal epileptiform patterns in adults in outpatient, inpatient, and ICU settings; and correctly interpret focal and generalized epileptiform patterns to aid in seizure and epilepsy syndrome classification.
