Pediatric EEG of Right Frontal Lobectomy
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. The patient that they are discussing underwent a frontal lobectomy. A frontal lobectomy is a procedure in which the frontal part of the brain is removed to try to eliminate severe seizures that originate in this area. The whirring in the background is the sound of the computer displaying the EEG. Terminology such as "continuous right hemispheric slowing" and "waxing and waning rhythmicity" refer to the types of patterns the physicians are seeing on the EEG. Recorded using a Zoom recorder.
Recording from Duke Children's Hospital. This recording was taken with permission from physicians of Duke Children's Hospital, Division of Pediatric Neurology.
