#1
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...

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...

BACKGROUND: The goal of intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring (IONM) is to minimize neurologic injury during surgery, yet patients still emerge with postoperative deficits. Few studies focus on outcomes relative to IONM alarms and interventions in this population. The authors sought to analyze the influence of IONM alarms with and without surgical intervention on patient outcome in spinal surgical patients who suffered immediate postoperative neurologic deficits. METHODS: Of 62,038 spinal surgeries with multimodality IONM, 90 patients with new or worsened postoperative neurologic deficits and whose outcomes were reported immediate to the surgery and at discharge were analyzed...

Electroneurography is one of the most useful tests for evaluating facial nerve function. Because many patients with peripheral facial palsy complain of difficulty with eye closure, recording compound muscle action potentials (CMAPs) of the orbicularis oculi (OC) is important. However, electromyographers often encounter OC CMAPs that have an initial positivity. In the present study, facial motor potentials of a healthy subject were recorded using an electrode on the acromion and electrical activities over the facial muscles were evaluated...

Intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring (IONM) consists of a group of neurodiagnostic techniques that assess the nervous system's functional integrity during surgical operations. A retrospective analysis of a pediatric female patient was conducted who underwent 12 operations for the correction of scoliosis, tethered cord, and split spinal cord wherein IONM played an important role. From age 3 to 6, she underwent six procedures including a release of the tethered cord, resection of the filum terminale, removal of a T11-T12 bony spur, release of L3 adhesions, repair of subcutaneous meningocele, and correction of scoliosis with a vertical expandable prosthetic titanium rod (VEPTR) technique without the use of IONM...
