Somatosensory evoked potentials were elicited by bilateral stimulation of the posterior tibial and median nerves (paired surface disk electrodes on each nerve, single stimulus, duration: 0.
Combined motor and somatosensory evoked potential monitoring for intramedullary spinal cord tumor surgery: correlation of clinical and neurophysiological data in 17 consecutive procedures.
These monitoring techniques include the somatosensory evoked potentials transcranial doppler internal jugular venous oxygen saturation internal carotid artery stump pressure.
Somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEP) represent the reproducible electrical activity of cortical and subcortical structures time-locked to a peripheral nerve stimulus (4).
Somatosensory evoked potential recording has been established as a meaningful neurophysiological measurement technique in both clinical and research contexts.
The criteria in China also consist of four steps: (1) The clinical examination confirm the BD diagnose, including deep coma, absence of brainstem reflexes and no spontaneous (SPONT) respiration; (2) confirmatory tests should fulfill two of the three which include transcranial Doppler (TCD), electroencephalogram (EEG), and somatosensory evoked potential (SEP); (3) the apnea test is positive; and (4) a repeat determination should be done 12 h later after the 1 [sup]st time.
Visual evoked potentials (VEPs), brainstem auditory evoked potentials (BAEPs), and somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) are used to electrophysiologically define lesions in CNS afferent pathways, and they reveal the multifocal characteristics of the disease.
Late amplitudes of somatosensory evoked potentials to noxious stimuli are thought to correlate with the subjective experience of pain intensity.
Accordingly, a progressive reduction of cortical somatosensory evoked potentials in parallel with functional impairment evolution was observed in longitudinal studies of HD patients [26].
Furthermore Brainstem Auditory Evoked Potentials (BAEP) and Somatosensory Evoked Potentials (SSEP) remain abnormal throughout the course of the disease.
Perhaps that investigation of scoliosis in the future could utilize the technique of measuring sensory changes using somatosensory evoked potentials described in the review by Passmore, Murphy and Lee.
The device is portable and intended for use in monitoring neurological status by recording somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEPs) or assessing the neuromuscular junction (NMJ).
