Neuro 4: Clinical Use of EEG for Seizure Diagnosis And Beyond
Neuro 4 Course Description:
Seizures often present as “weird episodes”, with a wide range of clinical manifestations that overlap with non-seizure disorders. To help answer the eternal question of “Is this a seizure?”, EEG is an inexpensive, non-invasive diagnostic modality that is increasingly available in veterinary medicine (including at WSU!).
In addition to helping diagnose seizures, EEG allows us to isolate specific subtypes of epilepsy. Additionally, this may help guide seizure therapy as well as aid in the diagnosis of sleep and movement disorders. This course offers background on the physiology of seizures and explores various clinical applications of veterinary EEG through discussion of case examples, to highlight the utility of this diagnostic tool.
