A new method to assess abnormal electroencephalogram activity?

Takeaway

  • Headset-type continuous video electroencephalogram (HS-cv EEG) demonstrated high sensitivity and specificity for detecting abnormal EEG patterns.

Why this matters

    Simplified continuous electroencephalogram (cEEG) monitoring is commonly used for detecting nonconvulsive status epilepticus (NCSE) but is limited in its detection of abnormal EEGs. Headset-type continuous video EEG monitoring could provide higher accuracy of detecting abnormal EEG patterns.
