EEG interpretation is a critical skill for most practicing neurologists, as well as for an increasing number of specialists in other practice settings. Handbook of EEG Interpretation, the first illustrated, portable handbook to discuss all aspects of clinical neurophysiology, is an essential means of quick reference for anyone involved in EEG interpretation.
Handbook of EEG Interpretation provides practical information on reading EEGs by juxtaposing actual EEGs with *bullet points of critical information, making it an essential neurophysiology reference for use during bedside, OR, ER, and ICU EEG interpretation. At once more concise, illustrative, and portable than other texts on EEG, Handbook of EEG Interpretation fits in a labcoat pocket, providing immediate information for anyone involved in EEG interpretation. It is a useful tool for all residents, fellows, and clinicians in neurology as well as many internists, psychiatrists, neurosurgeons, anesthesiologists, ICU staff, ER staff, EEG technologists, and nurses.
The book's seven main sections cover normal, abnormal, and epileptiform EEG patterns, as well as seizures, patterns of special significance (e.g., stupor and coma), polysomnography, and neurophysiologic intraoperative monitoring.
