Creator:

Description: 

This sound is a recording of an attending physician and a resident discussing the EEG of a patient in the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit at Duke Children's Hospital. In the recording, the resident asks questions about this technique and the attending physician answers. Terminology such as "focal slowing" and "abundant right sharps and spike waves" refers to the refer to the types of patterns the physicians are seeing on the EEG. At the end of the recording, the attending physician notes that the patient had a hemispherectomy, a procedure in which half of the brain is removed with the goal of eliminating severe seizures. However, the physician notes that this EEG is most consistent with "half-status post hemispherectomy", which means that the patient is still having seizures. Recorded using a Zoom recorder.
