C156 - Clinical EEG II: Focal, Diffuse, and Epileptiform Abnormalities in Adults

Event Time: Wednesday April 25, 2018 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): Epilepsy/Clinical Neurophysiology (EEG)
Director(s): Katherine Noe MD, PhD, FAAN
Description: Misinterpretation of EEG, particularly of epileptiform activity, may be common in clinical practice and can lead to adverse clinical outcomes. This knowledge-building course will review common EEG abnormalities in adults with epilepsy, focal brain lesions, encephalopathy, dementia, coma, and other diffuse disorders using case-based teaching and EEG samples, and an interactive EEG quiz. Speakers will also address the optimal use of routine and prolonged EEG studies in the outpatient and inpatient settings for diagnosis and management of adults with seizures and altered mental status. This program complements C138: Clinical EEG I: Normal EEG, Normal Variants, and How to Avoid The Common Pitfall of Over-reading and C170: Clinical EEG III: Neonatal and Pediatric, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to correctly recognize and intepret common EEG patterns encountered in adults with seizures and epilepsy (ictal and interictal) and in adults with focal and diffuse brain disorders. Participants should also be able to correctly select the most appropriate type of EEG for evaluation of adults with seizures or altered mental status in the outpatient, inpatient, and ICU setting.
CME Credits: 2
