Flatliner notes: Troubleshooting a faulty EEG recording or a case of preictal suppression?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Modern electroconvulsive therapy devices are largely trouble free but will periodically malfunction. We present a systematic approach to correction of a failure in the electroencephalogram recording capability of our Thymatron System IV machine.
