abstract

  • In a tertiary care medical and surgical ICU, electrographic seizures were seen on 11 % of cEEGs ordered for the evaluation of encephalopathy, and were associated with worse functional outcomes at discharge. Our findings confirm the results of a prior study suggesting a substantial burden of electrographic seizures in critically ill encephalopathic patients.
