Introducing Persyst Grand Rounds, a series of online lectures covering topics related to EEG and quantitative EEG for both the management and surgical evaluation of epilepsy and for monitoring and assessment in neurocritical care ICU environments.

For more than 30 years Persyst has been committed to providing advanced EEG detection and Trending solutions to clinical practice in order to assist in the review and analysis of EEG data.

But our mission isn’t only to provide EEG software solutions. We also know the importance of investing in our community by providing a platform for education where expertise and knowledge can grow towards the utilization and implementation of EEG and quantitative EEG.

That’s why we are proud to host* Persyst Grand Rounds, a series of online lectures covering topics related to EEG and quantitative EEG for the management and evaluation of both epilepsy patients and patients in neurocritical care ICU environments.

Each online lecture will feature an experienced epileptologist or neurophysiologist, presenting on a topic of their choice, as it relates to EEG monitoring and analysis.

*Persyst will make no requirements of the speakers, nor will Persyst control or edit the content. Speaker presentations are not required to include Persyst, its software, products or services.
