[EEG tracings in cerebral death (author's transl)]

Prakt Anaesth. 1978 Oct;13(5):446-9.
[Article in German]


In diagnosing electrocerebral silence (isoelectric tracing) the investigator must be sure to exclude the possibility of an artefact. With the methods available up to now for testing the proper functioning of electroencephalographic equipment it has not been possible entirely to avoid errors. A new method is described for the rapid and quantitatively exact testing of EEG equipment including electrodes and cables and the correct recording of isoelectric tracings.
