Obtaining an emergent EEG for the diagnosis of nonconvulsive status epilepticus and conconvulsive seizures in the intensive care unit raises logistic problems in most hospitals. Previous studies have looked into the hairline EEG for a broader population than the critically ill, with controversial conclusions. The authors created a montage sufficiently simple to be performed and interpreted by residents and rapidly achievable to meet the time constraints of a busy on-call schedule. Seven… CONTINUE READING
