Overview

750 EEG tracings provide the visual assistance you need to diagnose pediatric seizure activity

4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!

"The dearth of EEG atlases created solely for pediatrics make this work a welcome contribution to the field....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."—Doody's Review Service

"This multimedia

work provides an accessible, comprehensive, and

timely tool for the child neurologist or epileptologist

in training or in practice to become familiar with the

extraordinary richness of the clinical and electrographic

manifestations of childhood epilepsy. The text represents the distillation of an extraordinary body of clinical experience and painstaking attention to detail, which is characteristic of Dr. Laoprasert....Whether read cover-to-cover, used to review

specific problems, or dipped into at random, this text

makes learning about epilepsy in children a pleasure

and will ultimately enhance the quality of their lives

and those of their families."—Marc C. Patterson, MD, FRACP, FAAN, Mayo Clinic, Rochester (from the foreword)

Atlas of Pediatric EEG will prove to be an essential visual reference to for both the novice and experienced neurologist. For those new to the field, it will help develop the pattern recognition skills necessary to diagnose pediatric seizure activity. For experienced neurologists, it provides a working collection of known patterns to which they can compare their own tracings.

Atlas of Pediatric EEG features a full-color presentation, easy-to-read bulleted chapter text, and detailed legends under each tracing that provide a full description and diagnosis of what is seen in the tracing. Chapters also contain case examples that add clinical relevance to the tracings. This unique atlas covers every type of seizure, both epileptic and non-epileptic and divided into nine chapters:

  • Normal and Benign Varients
  • Artifacts
  • Newborn
  • Focal Nonepileptoform Activity
  • Generalized Noneplileptiform Activity
  • ICU
  • Epileptic Encephalopathy
  • Generalized Epilepsy
  • Focal Epilepsy

Also included is a companion DVD containing 190 video clips to assist you in learning how to interpret video-EEG, which is rapidly becoming the most common modality for EEG.

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.
