This course provides an overview for the indications and methodology of cEEG (Continuous Electroencephalography) monitoring in the ICU, and discusses the role of some quantitative EEG (Electroencephalography) analysis techniques. Clinical examples of cEEG use, including monitoring of status epileptics’, assessment of ongoing therapy for treatment of seizures in critically ill patients, and monitoring for cerebral ischemia, are presented and discussed.
