A 2010 meta-analysis (25 studies, 2395 patients) showed that the bilateral absence of the N20 component of the short-latency somatosensory evoked potential (SLSEP) with median nerve stimulation had a good predictive value for poor outcomes.
A somatosensory evoked potential (SEP) is the electrical activity response measured at the skin's surface following controlled peripheral nerve stimulation.
Also, visual evoked potential, brainstem auditory evoked potential, and somatosensory evoked potential were normal.
[sup][1] In summary, the criteria of the BD diagnoses consist of four steps: (1) The clinical examination confirm the BD diagnose, including deep coma, absence of brainstem reflexes, and no spontaneous respiration; (2) confirmatory tests should fulfill two of the three which include transcranial Doppler (TCD), electroencephalogram (EEG), and somatosensory evoked potential; (3) the apnea test is positive; and (4) a repeat determination should be done 12 h after the first time.
These include nerve stimulation, somatosensory evoked potential techniques to measure processing of sensory input by the brain, electromyography to measure electrical activity in muscles, and transcranial magnetic stimulation, which is used to investigate the output of the human motor cortex.
