Overview

Revised, updated, and expanded since first introduced in 2007, The Johns Hopkins Atlas of Digital EEG uses a live electroencephalogram reader, interactive computer programs, video, and traditional text to teach digital EEG reading.

Technological advances have largely rendered traditional paper EEG reading systems obsolete. The digital recordings now in use throughout most of the world carry the promise of greater accuracy and better diagnoses, but using the new software and interpreting the results require special training.

The Atlas incorporates a fully functional EEG reader that permits flexible filtering, scaling and montage changes, similar to "live" EEG readings. Users can learn to read key EEG patterns in various formats to optimize evaluation of patterns.

The Atlas also includes video examples of seizures and an accompanying Stellate signal file browser that allows synchronous viewing of selected seizure videos with corresponding EEGs.

Expert electroencephalographer Dr. Peter Kaplan narrates an extensive audio-EEG tutorial on how to read common and important EEG patterns.

The Atlas also includes MRI depiction of EEG electrode placement and a self-test of EEG skills. This second edition features expanded coverage of pediatric and infant EEG patterns, new EEGs, and updates on advanced EEG techniques for ICU recording, such as digital EEG processing with compressed spectral analysis and slow seizure pattern detections.

Note: This is a Windows-only application that requires Microsoft Windows XP or higher. Installation requires a DVD/CD drive.

Editorial Reviews

Neurology
[A] practical introduction to reading EEG for residents, technologists, and practitioners.
Archives of Neurology
Well-organized and sophisticated... as a teaching guide for clinical EEG, this atlas is highly recommended. Besides neurology residents, EEG technologists and physicians who are not experienced in clinical EEG will find this atlas a valuable reference.
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Srijana Zarkou, MD (Mayo Clinic Arizona)
Description: This detailed guide to digital EEG includes an interactive DVD primer and tutorial with additional material.
Purpose: Accurate interpretation of EEG is clinically important and helps guide medical decision-making. The purpose of this book is to train physicians and technologists to recognize common normal and abnormal variants represented in digital format. Normal variants, especially, are susceptible to overinterpretation. The authors point out the defining characteristics of these common and uncommon waveforms.
Audience: As the authors intend, this book is most appropriate for physicians and technologists. However, because it also provides basic information, it would be a good introductory book for beginners as well. The authors are clearly credible authorities in the subject of EEGs and clinical neurophysiology.
Features: The book and interactive programs on the DVD provide quick references with examples. Each example contains a waveform, patient information, findings, features, relevance, similar waveforms, and clinically related patterns. The DVD requires that a few programs be installed, and the instructions are outlined clearly. The DVD itself is user friendly and easy to navigate. After the program has been installed it is not necessary to insert the disk each time. This resource encompasses the important EEG concepts including common neonatal patterns, normal variants, and abnormal findings. Sample reports and worksheets are also helpful in showing the essential components to include in the documentation. The audio explanations of waveforms provide a unique and effective learning tool. The "EEG for Beginners" section is especially helpful, clear, and concise, touching on the most important concepts.
Assessment: Although this resource does not claim to be a comprehensive guide, it is quite complete. The information is presented clearly. This second edition includes common neonatal patterns, which were not covered in the first edition. The book and DVD provide an immense body of information in an easy to navigate format. This will be well received by physicians and technologists, as well as beginners in EEG.
Journal of Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Neuroscience
With this second edition of a work already considered the standard textbook in digital EEG (d/EEG), these three noted epileptologists, Krauss, Fisher, and now Kaplan, have created a work that will become a classic in its field.
