Overview

This atlas is the ONLY book to cover the two most commonly used tests in pediatric neurology: EEG and MRI Includes DVD with almost 200 video clips Atlas of Pediatric EEG offers neurologists and pediatric neurologists a well-illustrated, easy-to-use guide for diagnosing seizure activity. The book features 500 known tracings with correlating MR on the same page. Under each tracing is a full description and diagnosis of what is seen in the tracing and images. These descriptions facilitate learning the pattern recognition skills essential to using EEG. The companion DVD provides correlation between EEG and seizure activity Features Following the classification system of the International League Against Epilepsy, every seizure type and epileptic syndrome is included Includes DVD with almost 200 video clips for correlating siezure activity with EEG, including epileptic syndromes, seizure types, and lateralizing signs in focal epilepsy Correlates MRI, PET and SPECT with EEG activity Content you won't find in any other reference: Normal Electroencephalography, Artifacts, Variants, Focal Nonepileptiform Abnormalities, Generalized Nonepileptiform Abnormalities, Seizures and Epilepsy, Neonatal Electroencephalography, Electroencephalography in the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU), Electroencephalography in Nonepileptic Neurologic Disease

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Korwyn Williams, MD, PhD (Phoenix Children's Hospital)
Description: This is a comprehensive review of pediatric EEG in both written and visual formats.
Purpose: As stated in the foreword, the book "provides an accessible [and] comprehensive tool...to become familiar with the...clinical and electrographic manifestations of childhood epilepsy." The dearth of EEG atlases created solely for pediatrics make this work a welcome contribution to the field.
Audience: This atlas is very versatile. It lends itself to being read cover to cover (recommended for a novice to pediatric EEG) or being used as a quick reference by an experienced neurophysiologist. Dr. Laoprasert's extensive neurophysiology experience is exhibited by his clear and succinct writing.
Features: One difference between adult and pediatric EEG is the dramatic ontogenic changes that can occur in as short a time as a week or two in pediatric EEG. Therefore, topics such as normal features of the newborn and pediatric EEG and nonspecific variants get significant coverage, as they should. Additionally, focal and generalized epileptiform and nonepileptiform seizures and intensive care unit patterns are also reviewed. These patterns are often similar to adult patterns, but sometimes the variations can seem less benign than they are to those unfamiliar with pediatric EEG. Easily, the nicest component of this compendium is the DVD with its very extensive video library of seizures and nonepileptic events.
Assessment: I will certainly add this book to my EEG laboratory's library. It will serve as a quick and ready resource to confirm unusual EEG patterns. The DVD itself is a treasure to instruct students, residents, fellows, and epilepsy monitoring unit nurses in the recognition of seizure and nonepileptic semiologies.
