A-rhythm is present when the patient is awake and the eyes are closed, and is usually “blocked” (attenuated) by eye opening. The posterior dominant rhythm is often a mixture of several closely related frequencies, giving it a modulated or waxing-and-waning appearance. Low-amplitude widespread b-rhythm (13 Hz+) may also be seen as a normal inherited variant or due to sedative and other medications. 3 shows normal features of the waking EEG. Chapter 2 ▼ Electroencephalography and Evoked Potential Studies In the transition to drowsiness, the a-rhythm gradually reduces in amplitude and slows slightly in frequency.
Recording the EEG at maximal sensitivity settings makes it susceptible to recording and misinterpreting artifact as cerebral activity. The EEG should be used as a complementary tool in the clinical determination of brain death, and should be reserved for cases when one of the clinical features of brain death is not available or reliable. Focal slowing is the hallmark of focal brain lesions, and can take several forms. Persistent polymorphic d activity is most strongly associated with lesions undercutting the cortical–white matter connections.
With bipolar stimulation, both electrodes (the cathode and anode) are placed over the nerve. The cathode, or negative pole, attracts cations and is closest to the recording site. The anode, or positive pole, attracts anions and is farthest from the recording site. Current flows from anode to cathode and negative charges accumulate under the cathode and depolarize the nerve. In a routine stimulator, the cathode and anode are usually 2–3 cm apart. Alternatively, electroencephalogram (EEG) or monopolar needles can be used.
