Présentation de l'éditeur

Why consult encyclopedic references when you only need the essentials? Practical Approach to Electroencephalography, by Mark H. Libenson, MD, equips you with just the right amount of guidance you need for obtaining optimal EEG results! It presents a thorough but readable guide to EEGs, explaining what to do, what not to do, what to look for, and how to interpret the results. It also goes beyond the technical aspects of performing EEGs by providing case studies of the neurologic disorders and conditions in which EEGs are used, making this an excellent learning tool. Abundant EEG examples throughout help you to recognize normal and abnormal EEGs in all situations.

  • Presents enough detail and answers to questions and problems encountered by the beginner and the non-expert.
  • Uses abundant EEG examples to help you recognize normal and abnormal EEGs in all situations.
  • Provides expert pearls from Dr. Libenson that guide you in best practices in EEG testing.
  • Features a user-friendly writing style from a single author that makes learning easy.
  • Examines the performance of EEGs-along with the disorders for which they’re performed-for a resource that considers the patient and not just the technical aspects of EEGs.
  • Includes discussions of various disease entities, like epilepsy, in which EEGs are used, as well as other special issues, to equip you to handle more cases.

HASH(0x960f6048) étoiles sur 5 Very helpful EEG book 10 février 2010
Par Frogfoot - Publié sur
Format: Relié
If you do not want to buy multiple books on EEG and want only one, then this is it. I wish that this book had been written sooner. I am a epilepsy fellow in training and have read many EEG primers and text books including the recommended classics like Hughes, Ebersole , Niedermyer, John's Hopkins atlas, etc...All these books are good but, are dry reading or too voluminous and, at times are difficult to digest at first pass.

On the other hand I really enjoyed reading the Practical Approach to Electroencephalograph by by Mark Libenson M.D. The book is filled with all the information from basic concepts to advanced EEG interpretation written in a vey nice and easy to understand format. The author makes a special effort to simplify and explain the fundamentals and concepts in interpreting the EEG. Ample illustrative examples and easy to understand analogies are provided. There are quizzes to help you better understand the construction, advantages and potential pitfalls off various montages. While reading the book I had many "aha!" moments. There are many pearls which are very helpful even for the experienced EEG reader. This is one book that grows with you as you expand your role as an EEG reader. It suits the needs of both the novice and experienced. This book is the next best thing to having an experienced and knowledgeable Epileptologist by your side. I would highly recommend it to burdened neurology residents and epilepsy fellows who want to master EEG interpretation in an easy and knowledgeable manner. EEG techs would find it helpful too. I had fun reading it and hope that you do too.

HASH(0x960f609c) étoiles sur 5 A TALE OF TWO TOMES--HIT & MISS. 12 juin 2011
Par Quigly E. Demosthenes - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Since the advent of practicable digital EEG instrumentation for the clinic, the Neurodiagnostic (as it now seems to prefer to style itself) training community has lacked an appropriately contemporary and comprehensive introductory text.

Such a text would arrive unburdened by messy and cumbersome detail of antiquated and problematic analog EEG instrumentation--the latter with its trouble prone and difficult to adjust electromechanical pens, messy ink, relative extreme montage inflexibility, noise and artifact proneness, and bulky, difficult to access or review paper records....

While mention of such does, of course, belong in the historical contextualization of a field, properly abbreviated mention of same makes space (both intellectual- and shelf-) for necessary elucidation of unique aspects of the newer technology; Thus, caveats with respect to, say, adjustment of "pen damping" can yield to explanation of digital sampling--its limitations (e.g., Nyquist limit) and unique virtues (e.g., filtering and montage flexibility, etc.).

Clearly, the lack of such an up-to-date text has been felt; Two major new texts have now materialized, almost simultaneously, to occupy that relative instructional vacuum and one of them is this truly wonderful and practical (!) book by Libenson (Saunders Elsevier, 2010).

Libenson ("L") is just the book for the job!

The second text is the similarly titled, "Practical Guide for Clinical Neurophysiologic Testing*EEG" by Yamada & Meng (Wolters Kluwer|Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2010). (N.B. If you're starting out in EEG, acquire and read this problematic "Practical Guide..." only AFTER you've more pleasantly toured the EEG landscape as presented in L.)

Yamada & Meng ("Y&M") seems to have been eagerly awaited by the EEG community. (See the flavor of the first review of Y&M on Amazon.) For whatever reason, though, L seems not to have had the same degree of "advance press."

In any event, since both L and Y&M purport to target similar audiences (i.e., medical students, neurology and epileptology interns or fellows, EEG technologist aspirants--and, presumably, the instructors of the latter), comparison of the two does seem meet.

Thus, while considerations of

(i) Substance

cannot be entirely divorced from

(ii) Presentation

or from

(iii) Suitability to Audience (Utility),

it is, nevertheless, probably a fair call to say that Y&M excels with respect to (i) for the display of expertise--both broad and deeply detailed--on offer there.

However, that last is not in the least to say or imply that L shows itself to be in any way less expert!

Rather, Doctor Libenson, does readers just coming to his subject the intellectually generous and "practical" (sic!) favor of restraining himself to a strong didactic focus--tailoring his approach with student/acolyte needs obviously uppermost in mind.

By such considerate self-discipline and care, then, L winds up having it all over Y&M with respect to both, (ii) Presentation and (iii) Utility for intended audience.

The earliest three reviewers of this work (here, on Amazon) all seem to resonate - as does this reviewer - to L's fine pedagogy. This is in unfortunately stark contrast to Y&M.--

Editorially, too, L is meticulous just where Y&M, despite its encyclopedic competence, is in very deep trouble (until the next revised printing, anyway?)--

L is freer of typos, mislabeled, misspelled, or misplaced figures than is usually the case for first printings--especially so for so necessarily complicated a format as an EEG text.

In L, illustrations/figures/tables/shaded review and summary boxes (this helpful adjunct almost absent from Y&M, by the way!) are logistically disposed near the text they illustrate--instead of, as in Y&M, being bunched into multi-page runs of highly size-reduced charts, without intervening text but with almost unreadably tiny captions and difficult to distinguish callouts or markers; Y&M regularly imposes upon its readers tedious, concentration-smattering to-and-fro page flipping in order to make the necessary, respective mental correspondences between illustrations and their text.

L keeps things as large as practicable, legibly (and mercifully!) few to a page, lucidly produced, well-captioned, and with consistent, clear labeling and callout conventions.

Y&M is printed on glossy paper which is a probably expensive - yet nevertheless poor - choice in that the ink on such coated paper has a slight tendency to smudge under tired fingers (and Y&M's small fonts can hardly stand further legibility compromise).

Those slick Y&M pages easily catch glare--forcing one to tilt the (fairly heavy and, if softbound, floppy) book this way and that to keep page shine from obscuring important detail in cramped, undersized illustrations.

"By contrast," L deploys those - already mentioned - attractively open page layouts, less obtrusive paper, and adopts blue ink (Y&M is strictly monochrome) for judicious visual emphasis.

L is far easier on the eyes and, thereby, the Mind.

Y&M is also rife with sloppily, incompletely, or erroneously redacted figures, illustrations, etc.

L's index is adequate (though still not great). Y&M's grossly inadequate. (The lack of a comprehensive index is a distinct handicap to the student when reviewing for an exam or for the researcher/writer looking to cite another source or view on some point!)

Last, but far from least, Dr. Libenson writes a graceful, attractive prose rendering his text far less dry than anyone has a right to expect from a serious neurodiagnostics text. What an unexpected boon that is.

L is engaged and engaging. Y&M somewhat cold and detached.

If EEG interests you at all, you will enjoy reading L. On the other hand, despite some great content, you will need to truly love all things EEG to keep on task as you struggle through the seemingly unedited linguistic, syntactic, and typographical morass that is the littered visual and semantic landscape of Y&M.

It is painful (but nevertheless accurate) to be so seemingly harsh with respect to Y&M; I do appreciate what must have been a near herculean effort - even for its highly respected and experienced authors - to compose Y&M's core substance and to winnow sheaves to find the necessary relevant EEG example tracings. Y&M IS an impressively substantial effort and it could yet become the new "bible" of the field (especially by virtue of its comprehensivity). (Such is probably not L's ambition.)

At present, however, Y&M is so beset by editorial negligence, layout gaffs, and so linguistically compromised, that it will likely fail (for far too many) of its presumed educational goals: It's a needlessly tough read of what would otherwise be some very edifying stuff.

L (Saunders-Elsevier) and Y&M (Wolters Kluwer) come to us under quality medical/technical imprints. This makes the nightmare-and-daylight differences in editorial quality between these two works even more perplexing.

In sum, then, both L and Y&M are authoritative. L's goals are more limited but also far more suited to the needs of someone just entering the field (or needing to review it). As published and as intended, L is an almost unqualified success while Y&M is a sadly unnecessary failure... a failure which should probably be lain at the doorstep of the publisher and ascribed, in greater particular, to its editors' and production staff's negligent servicing of Y&M's authors and their prospective audience.

Y&M should never have been permitted to go to press as is. (Wait for good reviews of its next printings before acquiring.)

Except for its index, L is simply a gem of lucidity and approachability; It makes one want to meet the author.

Electrode caps off to Dr. Mark H. Libenson!

HASH(0x960f6378) étoiles sur 5 Easy read, concise, but exhaustive 21 novembre 2010
Par caricd - Publié sur

I was an epilepsy fellow and read the "bibles" (Ebersole,ect) of EEG. All of them are good books but one always look for a "way out" or a "flowchart" or something especially with the complications of interpreting EEG. The book by Sphelman was my guide during those times, more than the other voluminous (if you have ALL THE TIME to read) recommended texts during fellowship. But this book went far and beyond. I thought that I would be getting an "elementary" read when i bought this. But the way the author explained everything, in a very systematic manner, accompanied by great images, makes me want to go back to fellowship. Because with this book in hand, I think I might have had an easier fellowship. I value most the explanations which are not "elementary" in essence.

If you want a very appropriate guide in reading EEG without getting the sensation of "is that it?, can you explain more?, or this is way too hard to understand" sort of feeling, then get this book. What do have to loose anyways. You can return it if you don't like it. But i bet you won't.

HASH(0x960f68a0) étoiles sur 5 The best book for EEG 19 septembre 2011
Par SDK - Publié sur
Format: Relié
From the perspective of a final year neurology resident :

This is a very good book.

How good is it? Its probably the best book I have read after Guyton in the first year of medical school.

I can describe it thus: Lets say that you are trying to learn dermatology, and your instructor shows you picture after picture of different skin conditions - pemphigus, psoriasis, SLE, bullous pemphigoid, scabies, lichen planus - and you see 100s of such pictures, then there is a good chance that you will recognize that condition when you see it again.

But, something would be missing - understanding. You would likely confuse yourself silly between pemphigus and bullous pemphigoid unless you really knew what they were. You wouldnt understand what to do with an excoriated lesion. You wouldnt know what to do with a hyperkeratotic one.... you get the point.

EEG for me until I read this book was like that - "pattern recognition" which I thought was only about recognizing the form of waves. This book adds the magic sauce of understanding to the chicken of recognizing waveforms. Ive read (tried to read) almost all the other EEG books, but those were mostly atlases which were good during reading sessions, but not good enough to read on your own. This book was very helpful for me because it was a didactic text which covered both the technical and the clinical aspects of EEG in a detailed, yet well organized / easy to understand fashion.

There are parts which are explained multiple times throughout the text e.g. discussion regarding the use of an averaged-reference electrode. Some people might find that repetitive but for me it was an excellent memory aid - which may have been the author's intention.

Thank you for writing this book Dr. Libenson. I hope you write more books covering other aspects of epilepsy - intraoperative monitoring, surgical treatment etc as well!

(Disclaimer: I do not know Dr. Libenson personally. This book is awesome.)

I have flipped thru the pages to get a taste of this book, and read here and there.
I also checked the areas which are not described in clear manner in other books.
I feel this is a book which put into the writing, the daily thought process of every EEG reader and daliy discussion on EEG among the neurologists, residents and technicians.

This book doesnot go into details of technology but provides essentials, needed for the EEG reader, to have the whole concept of EEG.

Great teacher think about the students' problems and then gives the solution in very claer and starightforward way. This prooves the teaching skills of the author.
Welldone! Dr Libenson.
