IMPORTANCE Brief potentially ictal rhythmic discharges, termed B(I)RDs, have been described mainly in neonates, and their significance in adults remains unclear. OBJECTIVE To describe the incidence of B(I)RDs in critically ill patients and investigate their association with seizures and outcome. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS We reviewed the records(More)
IMPORTANCE The increasing use of continuous electroencephalography (EEG) monitoring in the intensive care unit has led to recognition of new EEG patterns that are of unclear or unknown significance. OBJECTIVE To describe an EEG pattern, lateralized rhythmic delta activity (LRDA), encountered in critically ill subjects and determine its clinical(More)
OBJECTIVE Continuous EEG (cEEG) monitoring of critically ill patients has gained widespread use, but there is substantial reported variability in its use. We analyzed cEEG and antiseizure drug (ASD) usage at three high volume centers. METHODS We utilized a multicenter cEEG database used daily as a clinical reporting tool in three tertiary care sites(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe EEG and clinical correlates, DC recordings and prognostic significance of cyclic seizures (CS). METHODS We reviewed our prospective continuous EEG database to identify patients with CS, controls with non-cyclic status epilepticus (SE) and controls without seizure matched for age and etiology. EEG was reviewed with DC settings. (More)
PURPOSE Lateralized periodic discharges (LPDs, also known as periodic lateralized epileptiform discharges) in conjunction with acute brain injuries are known to be associated with worse prognosis but little is known about their importance in absence of such acute injuries. We studied the clinical correlates and outcome of patients with LPDs in the absence(More)
