Continuous video-EEG monitoring (cEEG) has increasingly been used in the critical care population in large part due to the recognition that a wide variety of conditions are associated with the risk of developing seizures. As most seizures in this population are nonconvulsive, EEG provides the only reliable means to detect them and monitor response to their treatment. Below are common questions on the role of continuous EEG in the critical care patient followed by a brief overview.
