Event Details

Course introduction:
Electroencephalographic seizures are common in critically ill children in the PICU, often only identified using EEG monitoring given most are subclinical, and high seizure exposure is associated with unfavorable outcomes. Thus, recent practice guidelines advocate for increasing EEG monitoring use in critically ill children to identify electrographic seizures. This lecture by Dr. Nicholas Abend will provide a comprehensive summary of electroencephalographic seizure epidemiology and outcomes, EEG monitoring indications, and targeted approaches to EEG monitoring.

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

  • Summarize common indications for EEG monitoring and electrographic seizure incidence
  • Summarize associations between electrographic seizures and outcome
  • Understand how to efficiently implement EEG monitoring.

CE Credits:
This webinar has been approved for 1 ASET CEC.

    Dr. Nicholas Abend is an Associate Professor of Neurology, Pediatrics, and Anesthesia and Critical Care at the University of Pennsylvania and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. He is the Medical Director of Clinical Neurophysiology, the Director of Neurology Strategy and Inpatient Operations, and an Associate Scholar in the Center for Epidemiology and Biostatistics. His clinical practice focuses on seizure management and EEG interpretation in critically ill children and intractable epilepsy management. His research focuses on the significance, pathophysiology, and appropriate management of electrographic seizures in critically ill children and neonates, the treatment of status epilepticus, and the utility of EEG as a prognostic biomarker in children and neonates with acute encephalopathy. He has served as Chair Critical Care EEG Monitoring Research Consortium and a member of the American Clinical Neurophysiology Society’s Council, and he is a Fellow of the American Epilepsy Society and American Clinical Neurophysiology Society.
