Annual Fundamentals Symposium 2015 - Video-EEG Monitoring

Recorded December 4, 2015 at the 69th Annual Meeting of AES.

Overview
This program provides education regarding design, implementation and use of video-EEG. It reviews how to utilize modern technology, safety protocols and nursing and physician practice to provide optimal care for patients with uncontrolled seizures. Effective use of video, interictal EEG, ictal EEG and intracranial EEG are reviewed, and participants will learn how to integrate data obtained using these modalities. Sample cases are presented to further illustrate use of this method.

Learning Objectives
Following participation in this symposium, learners should be able to:
• Design and implement installation of a video-EEG monitoring unit, while also implementing safety measures
• Recognize when to make timely referrals of uncontrolled patients for diagnostic study
• Provide better interpretation of video-EEG, providing more accurate diagnosis of non-epileptic events. Learner will more accurately identify surgical candidates with improved surgical outcome
• Counsel patients regarding the role of video-EEG and explain the process
• Use recognition of epileptic and non-epileptic behaviors, improve their ability to differentiate between seizures and psychogenic non-epileptic seizures and arrive at more accurate diagnoses
