Date Posted: Wednesday, March 27, 2024

Authors, Kyle Rossi, MD, and Neville Jadeja, MDThe Epilepsy Division of the Department of Neurology is celebrating authors, Neville M. Jadeja, MD, and Kyle C. Rossi, MD, assistant professors of neurology, on their three-years of research to provide relevant material for the release of their recent publication, Critical Care EEG Basics, published by Cambridge University Press in February 2024.

Drs. Jadeja and Rossi recognized the need for a guidebook to support physicians and neurologists conducting bedside EEG readings, to understand and recognize EEG patterns for critically ill patients. The book is tailored to critical care professionals of all skill levels and backgrounds. It is easy to read, well-illustrated, and full of clinically relevant information. A chapter on quantitative EEG is also included.

Neville Jadeja, MD, signing his book release poster“Ultimately, it aims to provide readers with a foundation necessary to optimally use and better understand critical care EEG for the benefit of their patients. Currently, there is no similar resource available,” shared Dr. Jadeja. 

The book details case-based examples including clinical tips to support acute care professionals to read and discuss the EEG readings with their colleagues to deliver the best in patient care. 

Kyle Rossi, MD, signing his book release poster"One goal of the book was to introduce the concept of bedside critical care EEG reading to other medical professionals aside from epileptologists and neurologists. Oftentimes, being at the bedside with the EEG running is a uniquely valuable opportunity when interpreting EEG findings, and we wanted to empower these other medical professionals to fully use that position,” Dr. Rossi stated. 

Critical Care EEG monitoring is a field that is growing rapidly, and sometimes the terminology changes too quickly even for neurologists to keep up. This book introduces the latest iteration of the widely used American Clinical Neurophysiology Society (ACNS) critical care EEG terminology and tries to disseminate this language far and wide to keep as many people on the same page as possible. They hope this book will aid in the collaboration amongst the medical team to provide efficient and effective communication when treating complex conditions.

About the authors:

Neville Jadeja, MDNeville Jadeja, MD, MPH, assistant professor of neurology since 2019 works in the Epilepsy Division providing clinical care and teaching at the University and Harrigton campuses. He is now the author of two books relating to EEGs. 

Neville grew up in Mumbai, India, where he completed medical school before moving to New York to attend Mount Sinai Medical School, earning a master's in public health. His neurology training continued at Montefiore Medical Center, Albert Einstein COM in New York, as well as subspecialty fellowships at Harvard Hospitals and the Mayo Clinic. 

Neville’s interests include electrocorticography (EEG), electromyography (EMG), and intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM), and writing which led him to become a medical author. He is also involved with developing EMG capabilities at Harrington Hospital, and the single fiber EMG capability at the University Campus. He is hopeful of developing the IONM program at UMass with Dr. Pegah Afra, also in the Epilepsy Division. 

Neville’s enjoyment for teaching and writing has allowed him to reach audiences all over the world. Neville shared, “I enjoy working with my colleagues, teaching and training the next generation of neurologists, and caring for patients with neurological conditions.”

Kyle Rossi, MDKyle Rossi, MD, assistant professor, co-director of the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit at UMass Memorial Medical Center in the Epilepsy Division of neurology, treats patients with all kinds of epilepsy in clinic, and reads EEGs regularly. He is involved in epilepsy surgical case conferences and provides clinical instruction to the neurology residents, precepts the residency epilepsy clinic each week, and lectures to both residents and pre-clinical students. 

Rossi, who is from southeastern Massachusetts attended UMass Chan Medical School before completing a medical internship and neurology residency at the Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, and a fellowship in clinical neurophysiology and epilepsy at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, MA. He joined UMass Chan’s neurology department in 2020, while also working in community clinical neurology on the seacoast of New Hampshire (Portsmouth and Dover, NH) throughout most of 2023, before joining UMass Memorial Medical Center in late 2023. 

Dr. Rossi’s current career path allows him to use his strong interests in clinical neurophysiology and pharmacology to effectively treat patients with what might otherwise be a debilitating condition. He is constantly learning new ways to communicate with and effectively communicate with his patients of many backgrounds, to maintain good long-term relationships, and answering the questions of those asking for consults or procedures.  

Rossi is interested in the diagnosis and management of patients with drug-resistant epilepsy, standardization of EEG reporting to optimize for future data collection, clinical neurophysiology and electroencephalography, quantitative EEG analysis in critical care EEG, and pharmacology of antiseizure medications. Rossi shared, “I would like to expand the range of newer epilepsy treatment options available to the numerous patients with drug-resistant epilepsy in the UMass Memorial catchment area and continue to help hone our division’s expertise in these newer treatments.”
