Electroencephalography abnormalities are linked to acute neuroimaging anomalies in hospitalized adults with COVID-19

Takeaway

  • Electroencephalography abnormalities are linked to acute neuroimaging abnormalities in COVID-19, with high mortality rates, particularly in comatose people requiring mechanical ventilation.

Why this matters

    This study included the largest series of electroencephalography in people with COVID-19 and highlights the importance of fully assessing neurologic complications that may occur, especially in critical care. Electroencephalography in adults with COVID-19 could support the detection of seizure-related patterns and those at greater risk for neuropathology.
