Continuous electroencephalography (cEEG) monitoring in critically ill patients

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Critically ill patients need to be treated quickly, carefully, precisely and comprehensively. Neurological status should be concerned because of the severe impact that occurs if it is not immediately handled, that is permanent disability or death. The neurologic problem like non convulsive seizures may not distinctly clear. It is difficult to assess non-convulsive seizure only by clinical physical examination. Continuous Electroencephalography (cEEG) is a useful to measure electrical brain activity. It could be used to identify seizure, cerebral ischemic, monitor and evaluate the medication, and prognostic of the diseases. This equipment is noninvasive and could give real-time information about the patient condition. The complex procedure and availability of skilled technician and competent reviewer, is the barrier to optimize this tools. Besides the benefit and challenge, cEEG is recommended to be used in critically ill patients’ management.
