Abstract
Over the past two decades, electrophysiology has undergone unprecedented changes thanks to technical improvements, which simplify measurement and analysis and allow more compact data storage. This book covers in detail the spectrum of electrophysiology applications in patients with disorders of consciousness. Its content spans from clinical aspects of the management of subjects in the intensive care unit, including EEG, evoked potentials and related implications in terms of prognosis and patient management to research applications in subjects with ongoing consciousness impairment. While the first section provides up-to-date information for the interested clinician, the second part highlights the latest developments in this exciting field. The book comprehensively combines clinical and research information related to neurophysiology in disorder-of- consciousness patients, making it an easily accessible reference for neuro-ICU specialists, epileptologists and clinical neurophysiologists as well as researchers utilizing EEG and event-related potentials.
Contents
1. Acute Coma in the Intensive Care Unit -- 2. Electroencephalography and Evoked Potentials: Technical Background -- 3. Which EEG Patterns Deserve Treatment in the ICU -- 4. EEG in Refractory Status Epilepticus -- 5. Prognostic Utility of Electroencephalogram in Acute Consciousness Impairment -- 6. Prognostic Use of Somatosensory Evoked Potentials in Acute Consciousness Impairment -- 7. Prognostic Use of Cognitive Event- Related Potentials in Acute Consciousness Impairment -- 8. The Chronic Clinical Setting -- 9. Event-Related Potentials in Disorders of Consciousness -- 10. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation and Electroencephalography -- 11. Brain-Computer Interface for Assessing Consciousness in Severely Brain-Injured Patients -- 12. Imaging Correlations in Non-communicating Patients.
