Continuous Electroencephalographic Monitoring in Critically Ill Patients With Central Nervous System Infections

More than half of the ESz had no clinical correlate. Both ESz and PEDs were independently associated with poor outcome. Additional studies are needed to determine whether prevention or treatment of these electrographic findings improves outcome.
