The Atlas of EEG in Critical Care explains the principlesof technique and interpretation of recordings and discusses thetechniques of data management, and ‘trending’ central to long-termmonitoring. It demonstrates applications in multi-modal monitoring,correlating with new techniques such as microdialysis, and featuressuperb illustrations of commonly observed neurologic events,including seizures, hemorrhagic stroke and ischaemia.

User’s Review:

“We highly recommend this atlas to all health care providersinterpreting electroencephalograms of critically ill patients ormanaging critically ill patients who are undergoing EEGmonitoring.” (Epilepsy & Behavior, 6 October 2010)

“This unique atlas provides a reasonably comprehensive overviewof common and controversial EEG patterns in the ICU, and is ladenwith practical pearls of interpretation. It should serve theinterested intensivist well, and is an excellent starting point forneurologists and neurosurgeons interested in the evolving fields ofneurocritical care and EEG monitoring.” (Canadian Journal ofNeurological Sciences, November 2010)
