• Define key concepts for the use of electroencephalography (EEG) as a diagnostic tool in brain injured patients and assess implementation strategies of EEG monitoring for ICU patients in the prevention of secondary brain injury.
• Differentiate status epilepticus (SE), refractory status epilepticus, non-convulsive and convulsive status epilepticus and apply evidence based guidelines for the management of SE; and as a result, identify and aggressively treat non-convulsive status epilepticus in the critically ill patient.
