Continuous electroencephalography (CEEG) is chiefly performed at The Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) for identifying seizures, including its refined use within the epilepsy monitoring unit (EMU) as a differentiator between epileptic and psychogenic etiologies. CEEG also provides critical data that carry implications outside the bounds of both epilepsy and psychogenic events, such as the characterization of unorthodox clinical phenomena that are of physiological (though nonepileptic) origins. Although nonepileptic events (NEEs) are primarily linked with psychogenic phenomena (conversion disorder, malingering) that can mimic epileptic activity, they, like seizures, have diverse semiologies and etiologies...

Edwin M Valladares, Terese C Hammond
Positive airway pressure (PAP) therapy has been the standard treatment of choice for sleep disordered breathing, with 29-83% of patients being noncompliant. With the advent of newly Food and Drug Adminisatration (FDA)-approved implantable stimulators for treating sleep disordered breathing in a fraction of noncompliant PAP therapy patients, the landscape of sleep medicine and sleep technology is changing to narrow the gap between compliant and non-compliant patients. The remedē® System for treating central sleep apnea and the Inspire® upper airway stimulation (UAS) therapy for treating obstructive sleep apnea are providing new tools for sleep physicians, elevating sleep technologists' expertise, and paving the way for personalized medicine...

Tucker Johnson, Emily B Kale, Aatif M Husain
Motor evoked potentials (MEPs) are commonly used during neurophysiologic intraoperative monitoring. Anesthetic, homeostatic, surgical, and technical factors can cause a change in MEPs. The authors describe a case in which a bolus of magnesium sulfate resulted in a loss of amplitude of MEPs. Responses returned to near baseline about 20 minutes later. The patient did not have any new postoperative deficits. When MEP changes occur, in addition to evaluating other causes, magnesium sulfate administration should be considered...

Cassio Henrique Taques Martins, Catarina De Marchi Assunção
It is a fundamental element in both research and clinical applications of electroencephalography to know the frequency composition of brain electrical activity. The quantitative analysis of brain electrical activity uses computer resources to evaluate the electroencephalography and allows quantification of the data. The contribution of the quantitative perspective is unique, since conventional electroencephalography based on the visual examination of the tracing is not as objective. A systematic review was performed on the MEDLINE database in October 2017...

Robert S Fisher, Anna M Bonner
The definition of who has epilepsy, classification of seizure types, and types of epilepsy have all recently been revised. The classical definition of epilepsy as a person having two or more unprovoked seizures more than 24 hours apart has been expanded also to include those with one seizure and a high likelihood (more than 60%) of having another. In the new definition, epilepsy is considered to be resolved when a person is seizure-free for 10 years, the terminal 5 being off seizure medicines, or when an age-dependent syndrome has been outgrown...

Andrew Todd Ham
A thorough understanding of the governing concepts of polarity behavior within electroencephalograph (EEG) promotes analytical and thus technical proficiency of the technologist by providing a skill set to logically resolve the myriad of waveform presentations that are expected across all montage derivations. In addition to avoiding a reliance on cursory conceptualization techniques, a solid grasp of the underlying theory of EEG polarity permits a fundamental realization of the cause-effect relationships between the various directions of eye movement and the resulting multitude of wave deflection presentations observed across all montages...

Nicole Haddock, Mary Ellen Wells
STUDY OBJECTIVES: The aims of this study were (1) to determine the association between obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and depression and (2) to identify if treated or untreated OSA affects depression levels, in a sample of 51 patients. METHODS: Participants were 18 years old or older, who were diagnosed with some form of OSA. A survey was administered at a local sleep clinic and via social media, Facebook. A Patient Health Questionnaire Depression Scale (PHQ-8) was used to assess depression...

Microcephaly (MC), previously considered rare, is now a health emergency of international concern because of the devastating Zika virus pandemic outbreak of 2015. The authors describe the electroencephalogram (EEG) findings in sleep EEG of epileptic children who were born with microcephaly in areas of Brazil with active Zika virus transmission between 2014 and 2017. The authors reviewed EEGs from 23 children. Nine were females (39.2%), and the age distribution varied from 4 to 48 months. MC was associated with mother positive serology to toxoplasmosis (toxo), rubella (rub), herpes, and dengue (1 case); toxo (1 case); chikungunya virus (CHIKV) (1 case); syphilis (1 case); and Zika virus (ZIKV) (10 cases)...

Although inpatient epilepsy monitoring units (EMUs) are generally safe, seizures in this setting can still produce significant morbidity. The MORTEMUS (MORTality in Epilepsy Monitoring Unit Study) study revealed that the most feared consequence of an unattended seizure-sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP)-does occur rarely in the EMU. Nearly all cases identified in that study occurred in the evening. The hypothesis for this study is that unwitnessed seizures would be more likely to occur during the night shift, and that response times to seizures would be slower at night, due to multiple variables...
