Short-Latency Somatosensory Evoked Potentials (SSEPs) in Comatose Patients
Recently, short-latency somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEPs) have been used diagnostically in a variety of neurologic conditions. Their reliability has been studied by many investigators. The present study was undertaken to clarify the clinical usefulness of SSEPs in patients who are comatose due to severe intracranial organic lesions.
