Abstract

The electroencephalogram (EEG) is well-suited for continuous brain monitoring in neurologic patients in the ICU, as the EEG is very sensitive for potential risks as ischemia and (non-convulsive) seizures. However, for a real-time interpretation of the EEG, quantitative EEG (qEEG) feature extracting and an adequate presentation are required. The goal of this study is the implementation and evaluation of a system for real-time classifying EEG patterns based on a combination of different qEEG features. This classifier could be used in the future as a monitoring system for the real-time computer assisted detection of seizure activity and ischemia.
