ABSTRACT

Objective:

To analyze continuous 1- or 2-channel electroencephalograms (EEGs) of mechanically ventilated patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) with regard to occurrence of epileptiform potentials.

Design:

Single-center retrospective analysis.

Setting:

Intensive care unit of Hannover Medical School, Hannover, Germany. Patients Critically ill COVID-19 patients who underwent continuous routine EEG monitoring (EEG monitor Narcotrend-Compact M) during sedation. Measurements and Main

Results:

Data from 15 COVID-19 patients (11 men, four women; age 19-75 years) were evaluated. Epileptiform potentials occurred in 10 of 15 patients (66.7%).

Conclusions:

The results of the evaluation regarding the occurrence of epileptiform potentials show that there is an unusually high percentage of cerebral involvement in patients with severe COVID-19. EEG monitoring can be used in COVID-19 patients to detect epileptiform potentials.
