This seminar is packed with information
and is designed for technologists with some experience and a basic understanding of EEG.  This course provides an ideal opportunity to prepare for Part I and II of the ABRET exam.
 
Emphasis is placed on pattern recognition skills for both normal and abnormal patterns for adult and pediatric EEG. The course includes an overview of instrumentation, filters, and waveform analysis, as well as polarity and localization. Small group workshops will enhance customized learning, and provide the opportunity to ask questions in an informal setting. It is also appropriate for experienced technologists who would like to advance their knowledge with a comprehensive review course.
 
This is a comprehensive course that reviews topics of interest to technologists performing routine EEGs. Completion of the 2-day course will award approximately 14.5 ASET-CEUs that can be applied toward re-certification.
Course Objectives:
  • Be able to explain basic EEG instrumentation, properties of the differential amplifier, and the effect of filters on waveforms
  • State the polarity convention, determine the polarity of waveforms and localize an event in a variety of montages
  • Practice measuring waveform amplitude and duration and demonstrate the function of filters
  • Build skills in EEG waveform recognition through interactive learning
Who should attend?
This seminar is designed for technologists with some experience and a basic understanding of normal EEG patterns. Technologists planning to take part I or II EEG Board Exam and experienced technologists wishing to enhance or further their knowledge should consider this course.

This is an intermediate level seminar for technologists who have extensive experience in basic EEG and are now planning to expand their scope of practice to advanced procedures in LTM and continuous EEG in the ICU. The content of this course is designed to provide an overview of concepts that will help technologists prepare for the ABRET CLTM exam, and will also provide essential information for technologists working in a comprehensive epilepsy center.

Course Objectives:
  • Gain an in-depth understanding of seizure patterns and clinical correlations and hear fascinating case studies from comprehensive epilepsy centers
  • Learn about imaging studies typically used as part of a comprehensive LTM work-up and the technologist’s role in these studies
  • Build skills and confidence to assist in the work-up for surgical resection of seizure foci
  • Develop  patient safety and seizure assessment skills to improve patient outcomes  in the LTM setting
  • Gain the skills you need to accept an expanded role as part of the LTM/ICU team

Who should attend?

This seminar is designed for technologists who are experienced in routine EEG studies, and who are facing challenges with expansion of services to continuous monitoring of epilepsy and critical care patients, and those who are planning to take the ABRET CLTM Exam. This is also an interesting and relevant educational opportunity for those already possessing the R. EEG T. and/or CLTM credential who need ASET-CEUs to re-certify.
