Certain precautions are necessary if electroencephalography is to be most useful. The patient should not be sedated (except as noted above) and should not have been without food for a long time, for both sedative drugs and relative hypoglycemia might modify the normal EEG pattern. The same may be said of mental concentration and 28 Part 1 THE CLINICAL METHOD OF NEUROLOGY A B C 50µV 1Sec Figure 2-4. A. Normal alpha (9 to 10 per second) activity is present posteriorly (bottom channel). The top channel contains a large blink artifact.
Grossly disorganized background activity interrupted by repetitive “pseudoperiodic” discharges consisting of large, sharp waves from all leads about once per second. This pattern is characteristic of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. H. Advanced hepatic coma. Slow (about 2 per second) waves have replaced the normal activity in all leads. This record demonstrates the triphasic waves often seen in this disorder. I. Deep coma following cardiac arrest, showing electrocerebral silence. With the highest amplification, electrocardiogram (ECG) and other artifacts may be seen, so that the record is not truly “flat” or isoelectric.
Continued) Types of Normal Recordings The normal record in adults shows somewhat asymmetrical 8- to 12-per-second 50-mV sinusoidal alpha waves in both occipital and parietal regions. These waves wax and wane spontaneously and are attenuated or suppressed completely with eye opening or mental activity (see Fig. 2-4A). The frequency of the alpha rhythm varies minimally for an individual patient, although the individual’s rate may slow during aging. Waves faster than 12 Hz and of lower amplitude (10 to 20 mV), called beta waves, are normally recorded from the frontal regions symmetrically.
