As the population ages, technology improves, intensive care medicine expands and neurocritical care advances, the use of EEG monitoring in the critically ill is becoming increasingly important. This atlas is a comprehensive yet accessible introduction to the uses of EEG monitoring in the critical care setting. It includes basic EEG patterns seen in encephalopathy, both specific and non-specific, nonconvulsive seizures, periodic EEG patterns, and controversial patterns on the ictal–interictal continuum. Confusing artefacts, including ones that mimic seizures, are shown and explained, and the new standardized nomenclature for these patterns is included. The Atlas of EEG in Critical Care explains the principles of technique and interpretation of recordings and discusses the techniques of data management, and 'trending' central to long-term monitoring. It demonstrates applications in multi-modal monitoring, correlating with new techniques such as microdialysis, and features superb illustrations of commonly observed neurologic events, including seizures, hemorrhagic stroke and ischaemia. This atlas is written for practitioners, fellows and residents in critical care medicine, neurology, epilepsy and clinical neurophysiology, and is essential reading for anyone getting involved in EEG monitoring in the intensive care unit.

Atlas of Pediatric and Neonatal ICU EEG is the first and only atlas to provide a comprehensive overview of the EEG patterns encountered in critically ill neonates and children, with emphasis on their significance and implications for patient care. EEG monitoring is an essential component of neurocritical care, and the patterns seen in critically ill children and neonates are often distinctly different from those found in critically ill adults or encountered in an epilepsy monitoring unit or outpatient neurophysiology laboratory. This resource provides expert guidance in the interpretation of neonatal and pediatric critical care EEG with hundreds of examples and detailed descriptions to enhance understanding and facilitate better outcomes for EEG monitoring in children. The chapters begin by addressing the basics of each topic before focusing on specific EEG patterns and their relevance to a particular disease state. Dedicated chapters on rhythmic and periodic patterns, status epilepticus, quantitative EEG analysis, and multimodality monitoring provide a thorough grounding in ICU EEG skills and applications. The book concludes with a series of thirteen cases illustrating common scenarios to help clinicians apply lessons learned. 140 board-style questions targeting information covered on the epilepsy and clinical neurophysiology boards is included online along with 12 videos that further amplify chapter content. Incorporating the most recent American Clinical Neurophysiology Society guidelines for critical care EEG monitoring in neonates and children, this evidence-based atlas will be a trusted reference for critical care clinicians, neurologists, epileptologists, and other providers who care for critically ill neonates and children. Key Features: Detailed descriptions of the indications for and utility of ICU EEG monitoring in neonatal and pediatric patients Over 270 images of neonatal and pediatric ICU EEGs with explanations of key features Illustrative cases, board-style review questions with rationales, and videos facilitate understanding and application of the material covered in the images and text Takeaway points included at the end of chapters underscore essential information

Unlike many other diagnostic procedures, EEG, now over 80 years old, and epilepsy monitoring, now over 40 years old, have demonstrated their usefulness and stood the test of time. Although the benefits of these diagnostic procedures are clear, monitoring is currently not available to the majority of patients in need. One of the factors limiting broader implementation is the lack of practitioners with special expertise. Epilepsy and Intensive Care Monitoring was developed to address this concern. This practical volume contains detailed chapters covering all areas of clinical epilepsy monitoring. Featuring expert authors from major epilepsy centers, this seminal work reviews all current procedures and applications for monitoring adults and children with epilepsy in the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit and the ICU. Opening sections are devoted to indications, procedures, administrative considerations, and technical aspects of the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit and ICU monitoring, followed by dedicated sections on EEG diagnosis and localization and monitoring of neurological disorders in the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit and ICU. The book concludes with special procedures and an Appendix with guidelines for organizing epilepsy monitoring centers and technical aspects of EEG monitoring. Key Features include Covers both adult and pediatric Epilepsy Monitoring Unit and ICU monitoring Contains over 235 high-quality EEGs and other illustrations, including an 8-page color section Comprehensive coverage; no other book in this area has comparable breadth and depth Clinical Focus Expert authors tell you when and how to perform the procedures they discuss
