Electrographic, but clinically silent, seizures are common in critically ill and often heavily sedated patients in intensive care, independent of etiology [26]. Therefore continuous EEG (cEEG) monitoring, if available, is preferred at least initially to ensure good sensitivity. Most would agree that electrographic nonconvulsive seizures should be ambitiously treated in the critically ill child, but details are under debate and more research needed. In addition to detecting epileptic seizure activity, EEG visualizes cortical electric activity and thus reflects the level of unconsciousness (or anesthesia).
