Table 2 Electroencephalogram results of patients with cefepime neurotoxicity

From: Cefepime neurotoxicity in the intensive care unit: a cause of severe, underappreciated encephalopathy

N EEG findings*
2 Atypical triphasic waves
2 Severe diffuse slowing
1 Triphasic waves and multifocal sharp waves
1 Stimulus-induced rhythmic sharp waves over the midline region (SIRPIDs)
1 Multifocal and quasi-periodic sharp waves
1 Multifocal sharp waves
1 Continuous generalized sharp and slow wave discharges (NCSE) and triphasic waves
  1. *All EEGs additionally showed moderate-severe nonspecific diffuse slowing of the background. EEG, electroencephalogram; SIRPIDs, stimulus-induced rhythmic, periodic, or ictal discharges; NCSE, nonconvulsive status epilepticus.
