Atlas of Neonatal Electroencephalography / Edition 3

Hardcover (Print)
Not Available on BN.com
 

Overview

Thoroughly revised and updated by internationally recognized experts, the Third Edition of this popular and widely used atlas reflects twelve years of vital advances in electrodiagnosis of neurologic function in neonates. The authors have distilled the vast, complex literature on neonatal EEG to provide a practical, contemporary, superbly illustrated guide to performing EEG in neonates and interpreting both common and unusual patterns.

This edition includes digital as well as analog EEG and features over 200 brand-new, full-sized reproductions of EEG tracings. The authors demonstrate state-of-the-art improvements in recording technique and highlight recent advances in the understanding of normal and abnormal brain development.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: John Willis, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This is a compact, thorough guide to literature on neonatal EEG that spans half a century. Chapters on visual analysis, recording techniques, artifacts, normals, patterns of questionable significance, abnormals, and seizures organize the material. Many excellent figures show examples of the patterns discussed, and the discussion is well-referenced and succinct. This remains an excellent reference on a subject that is forbidding for budding and veteran electroencephalographers alike. It is dedicated to late co-author and EEG pioneer Peter Kellaway. That future editions should continue to improve the educational value of this book might be just as Dr. Kellaway would have liked it.
Purpose: The book seeks to summarize knowledge on neonatal EEG and to educate electroencephalographers. This is a true need; the subject is poorly understood by most neurologists. The goal is met.
Audience: The book is written for neurologists at any level of training with an interest in EEG, as well as for other neurophysiologists and for EEG technicians. The authors are recognized authorities in the area.
Features: The book best covers the various patterns seen in neonatal EEG. The illustrations are excellent. There is no other comprehensive source for this information. The discussion could be longer and more comprehensive. The separation of text at the beginning of each chapter from the illustrative figures of EEGs at the end makes for an inconvenient read and study, requiring many page-turnings for correlation. Many figures are on pages with unused space: perhaps future printings might place text and figures in closer proximity. This might allow the authors more space for discussion; the expected resolution of the "burst-suppression" pattern and its implications for future development would have been welcome notations, for example.
Assessment: This is a handy reference for electroencephalographers reading neonatal EEGs. It will educate neophytes and serve as a reference for veterans. There are no comparable references. It is more compact than previous editions and updates the literature with new information since the prior edition.
