Revised, updated, and expanded since first introduced in 2007, "The Johns Hopkins Atlas of Digital EEG" uses a live electroencephalogram reader, interactive computer programs, video, and traditional text to teach digital EEG reading.
Technological advances have largely rendered traditional paper EEG reading systems obsolete. The digital recordings now in use throughout most of the world carry the promise of greater accuracy and better diagnoses, but using the new software and interpreting the results require special training.
The "Atlas" incorporates a fully functional EEG reader that permits flexible filtering, scaling and montage changes, similar to "live" EEG readings. Users can learn to read key EEG patterns in various formats to optimize evaluation of patterns.
The "Atlas" also includes video examples of seizures and an accompanying Stellate signal file browser that allows synchronous viewing of selected seizure videos with corresponding EEGs.
Expert electroencephalographer Dr. Peter Kaplan narrates an extensive audio-EEG tutorial on how to read common and important EEG patterns.
The "Atlas" also includes MRI depiction of EEG electrode placement and a self-test of EEG skills. This second edition features expanded coverage of pediatric and infant EEG patterns, new EEGs, and updates on advanced EEG techniques for ICU recording, such as digital EEG processing with compressed spectral analysis and slow seizure pattern detections.
