The role of EEG in the diagnosis and classification of the epilepsy syndromes:
tool for clinical practice by the ILAE Neurophysiology Task Force
ISBN : 978-2-7420-1562-7
This book, written by international experts in clinical epileptology and EEG, comprehensively covers the clinical and EEG features of all paediatric and adult epilepsy syndromes, proposes recording protocols based on the behaviour of the diagnostic EEG features in each syndrome, and rates diagnostic confidence according to the findings in hand and the available clinical information.
The combination of the necessary clinical and EEG information makes this book a reference guide in daily clinical practice for all electroencephalographers with interest in paediatric and adult EEG, and even for epileptologists or general and child neurologists without formal EEG training who believe that some acquaintance with EEG can improve their clinical practice.
The book is also recommended to EEG technologists and epilepsy nurses in both adult and paediatric EEG departments. The ample clinical information will systematically organise and update their training in clinical epileptology and explain the rationale behind the proposed recording protocols.
◊ The text contains practical information, tips and clues to improve the reader’s recording techniques and strategies.
The double tier makes this book useful in both tertiary epilepsy centres and district hospitals, including major epilepsy centres in resource-limited countries.
