Atlas of EEG Patterns, Second Edition
The electroencephalogram (EEG) is essential to the accurate diagnosis of many neurologic disorders. The Second Edition of Atlas of EEG Patterns sharpens readers? interpretation skills with an even larger array of both normal and abnormal EEG pattern figures and text designed to optimize recognition of telltale findings. Trainees will benefit from hundreds of EEG figures, helping them spot abnormalities and identify the pattern name. Experienced neurologists will find the book excellent as a quick reference and when trying to distinguish a finding from similarly appearing patterns.
Organized by EEG pattern, the Atlas orients you to the basics of EEG, helps the reader identify the characteristic EEG wave features and leads you to the EEG diagnosis through a table that organizes all of the EEG patterns according to their wave features. The Atlas includes the full range of EEG patterns from the common rhythms to the rare findings, and it also includes numerous examples of artifacts.

? Solution Site with full text and image bank.
? An extensive table guides you from EEG wave features to a list of EEG patterns that?have the features, then to detailed descriptions and examples of each pattern.
? Over 150 new EEG figures from an established EEG laboratory sharpen your?interpretation skills using real-world examples.
Organized by wave features rather than pattern names, this atlas helps guide the reader to an EEG interpretation even when the waveform is unfamiliar. The first section takes the reader through the process of characterizing EEG waves by their features. The second section organizes EEG patterns by their features, so provides EEG waveform differential diagnoses. The third section is organized alphabetically by pattern name with each pattern described in a way that allows the reader to distinguish it from similarly appearing patterns. Examples of the patterns also are provided.
