Intra-Operative EEG Monitoring: Monitoring of Background Rhythm and Paroxysmal Activity
The value of EEG monitoring as noninvasive brain monitoring in patients under anesthesia or in critical conditions is readily conceived but simple observation of running EEG wave patterns tells very little. Detection of abrupt appearances of deviation from the on-going background patterns would certainly be helpful in early recognition of grave changes in cerebral function or metabolism. We have developed a prototype EEG analyzer capable of doing this.
