Continuous electroencephalogram (EEG) monitoring is an important tool to assess brain function in critically ill patients.

Abnormal electrical activity in the brain can lead to altered consciousness and excessive metabolic activity. The burden of seizure and seizure-like activity has an important impact on recovery after acute brain injury. Some of the questions our faculty address include:

  • How can EEG predict neurologic deterioration?
  • What is the severity of metabolic disturbance caused by ictal and interictal spectrum disorders?
  • What factors improve adherence to treatment with anti-seizure medications?
  • Can neurosteroids help halt continuous seizure activity and status epilepticus?
