This course will expand on the concepts presented in Pediatric Neurodiagnostic Technology I and begins to correlate electroencephalographic (EEG) patterns with varying disease processes including infectious, toxic, and metabolic disorders. Students will also examine the effect of trauma, cerebral vascular accidents, genetic disorders, and differential diagnosis with the use of EEG. In the lab, the students will continue to perfect their skills in applying the electrodes in an efficient manner while addressing specific patient needs and mental capacity. Course instruction will use a blended approach that focuses on active engagement of the student in the classroom, lab, and in the simulation center.
