  • Review aEEG basics, indications for use and clinical applications
  • Discuss pattern classification with emphasis on assessment of basic neurologic status, seizure detection and background pattern classification software enhancements with the OBM
  • Identify electrode options, 10-20 placement, quality of signal (troubleshooting) and best practices
  • Review OBM functionality, remote capability and export of data (e.g. for scientific/research applications)
  • Review aEEG traces using interpretative skills and demonstrate familiarity with background pattern and seizure detection software
  • Discuss aEEG studies in an interactive format.
