About this book

Over the past two decades, electrophysiology has undergone unprecedented changes thanks to technical improvements, which simplify measurement and analysis and allow more compact data storage. This book covers in detail the spectrum of electrophysiology applications in patients with disorders of consciousness. Its content spans from clinical aspects of the management of subjects in the intensive care unit, including EEG, evoked potentials and related implications in terms of prognosis and patient management to research applications in subjects with ongoing consciousness impairment. While the first section provides up-to-date information for the interested clinician, the second part highlights the latest developments in this exciting field. The book comprehensively combines clinical and research information related to neurophysiology in disorder-of- consciousness patients, making it an easily accessible reference for neuro-ICU specialists, epileptologists and clinical neurophysiologists as well as researchers utilizing EEG and event-related potentials.

Reviews

“This book takes an in-depth look at neurophysiologic modalities that may be used in the assessment of disorders of consciousness. … This book is concise and easily interpretable and will appeal to clinicians that care for patients with disorders of consciousness in the acute and chronic states. … Each chapter is well cited, with appropriate use of older and newer references. … This book should serve for a reference guide for any clinician caring for patients with disorders of consciousness.” (Amy Z. Crepeau, Journal of Clinical Neurophysiology, Vol. 32 (6), December, 2015)

“This is a review of electroencephalography and evoked potentials in both critical care and subacute settings. … New providers treating patients with neurological illnesses and senior practitioners who wish to have a concise monograph to review recent developments in clinical neurophysiology will find this book a worthy introduction. … This is an excellent primer for the important horizon of neurological monitoring and prognostication.” (David J. Dries, Doody's Book Reviews, May, 2015)
