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

This atlas serves as a comprehensive working reference for a wide range of clinicians practicing in the field of clinical neurophysiology, including adult and pediatric neurologists, epileptologists, neurocritical care specialists, and electroneurodiagnostic technologists. Covering EEG, EMG, MEG, evoked potentials, sleep and autonomic studies, and ICU, critical care, and intraoperative monitoring, expert authors share examples of common and novel artifacts and highlight signature features to help practitioners recognize patterns and make accurate distinctions. This visual compendium of information in atlas format addresses the artifact in all areas of clinical neurophysiology and highlights the traps and pitfalls that can taint studies and lead to misdiagnosis if not properly identified. Atlas of Artifacts in Clinical Neurophysiology provides full-page examples of waveforms and recordings to enhance appreciation of the nuances involved in distinguishing artifacts from neurological findings that require intervention. With the most up-to-date information available on artifacts present during procedures in both adult and pediatric patients, this book provides readers with an in-depth understanding of artifact interpretation that is essential to any clinician working in the field of clinical neurophysiology given the ubiquitous nature of artifact during electrophysiological recording. Key Features: The only dedicated reference on artifacts in all areas of clinical neurophysiologic testing Large-format examples of both common and unusual artifacts encountered in each procedure category Up-to-date text in each chapter provides greater depth of explanation Draws on the expertise and clinical wisdom of leading practitioners to develop mastery in recognizing artifacts and avoiding diagnostic pitfalls Includes access to the digital ebook and 19 videos

"Electroencephalography (EEG) is an invaluable tool for evaluating patients with suspected seizures or encephalopathy, yet EEG is only one source of data, so information from this technology must be integrated with knowledge of basic science and clinical neurology. This work has a principal focus on EEG, but interleaves that discussion with information on seizures, epilepsy, encephalopathy, and other neurologic conditions for which EEG can be a useful diagnostic tool"--
This comprehensive atlas presents the clinical practice of neonatal EEG through text, references, and detailed figures demonstrating normal and abnormal features of the neonatal EEG from the most premature infant to one month post-term. Each chapter contains dozens of full-page EEG images, along with detailed legends that place them in context, to emphasize specific components of the neonatal EEG as a benchmark for recognizing signature characteristics and interpreting clinical data. For the new Fourth Edition, Eli Mizrahi and Richard Hrachovy, established authorities in neonatal neurophysiology, have distilled the advances of the last ten years and provided the latest and best references for each chapter, updating their indispensable atlas to reflect current research and practice throughout. Atlas of Neonatal Electroencephalographyis a singular atlas, unrivaled in the breadth of its coverage and level of detail in presenting examples of normal and abnormal recordings of neonatal EEG patterns at varying young ages. This edition includes many new digital figures which emphasize findings in the premature infant, artifacts, and abnormal features, and expanded discussions of age-dependent features of sleep and bedside monitoring. Designed to appeal to practicing neurologists, neurophysiologists, epileptologists, and electroneurodiagnostic technologists, this book is a must-have for anyone involved in recording and interpreting neonatal EEG readouts. Trainees will also find this atlas to be an approachable and an essential guide to the development of the infant brain.
