EEG in the ICU: Emerging Trends in Clinical Practice


22jun11:00 am12:00 pmEEG in the ICU: Emerging Trends in Clinical PracticeJoin this eSeminar with Dr. Lawrence Hirsch

Event Details

Course introduction:
Dr. Lawrence Hirsch, Professor of Neurology at Yale University, will discuss the use of real-time or close to real-time neurotelemetry; methods of obtaining rapid initial EEGs; detecting events other than seizures using quantitative EEG (including ischemia, high intracranial pressure, etc); and invasive EEG recordings. This will be done via review of the literature, especially recent publications, and sample cases.

Learning Objectives:
At the conclusion of this seminar the participants will be able to:

  • Recognize the importance of rapid diagnosis of nonconvulsive status epilepticus.
  • Be aware of emerging devices for obtaining rapid initial EEGs.
  • Know how to identify ischemia, changes in intracranial pressure, and other acute changes in brain function via quantitative EEG.
  • Recognize the potential clinical utility of intracranial EEG recordings in the critically ill.
