Electroencephalographic study in children with anaemia
An electroencephalographic study on 10 cases of anemia, six children and 4 adults, with hemoglobin content ranging in the groups between 1.6 to 3 and 2 to 5 G.% is presented.
Acute anaemia does not give rise to any abnormal electrical potential either at rest or during hyperventilation or intermittent photic stimulation. The data are discussed.
