C170 - Video EEG: Name That Spell

Event Time: Wednesday May 8, 2019 7:00 am to 9:00 am
Topic(s): Epilepsy/Clinical Neurophysiology (EEG), Movement Disorders
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 identify indications for video EEG monitoring, review the complete differential diagnosis for spells that present in the neurology clinic, recognize localizing value of seizure semiology, and consider the diagnosis for both pediatric and adult spells based upon video EEG monitoring.
CME Credits: 2
