The neurologic morbidity of delayed ischemic deficits from vasospasm following aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) continues to be the most debilitating complication from this devastating illness. Neurologic critical care is focused on recognition and treatment of these secondary insults but often the treatment is withheld until an irreversible deficit becomes manifest. Continuous EEG (cEEG) monitoring provides a unique potential to recognize early secondary insults and offers an… CONTINUE READING
