Example text

SAFETY STIMULUS RATE The choice of stimulus rate affects the averaging process. Mains interference is neither random nor unrelated to a fixed stimulus rate. The 60-Hz artifact can be made random (relative to the stimulus) by using a random stimulus rate. A patient connected to an electrodiagnostic instrument is potentially at risk for excessive electric current if special precautions are not taken. Normally the skin’s high impedance (100 k ohms) offers some protection from electric shock; however, electrodes applied to abraded skin with conductive gel can lower the impedance to below Electrophysiologic Equipment and Electrical Safety 1,000 ohms.

Spike Discharges One of the major uses of electroencephalography is in the investigation of patients with suspected epilepsy. In this regard, the presence in the EEG of interictal spike discharges or sharp waves is often held to be suggestive of an epileptic disturbance. Epileptiform activity is defined as abnormal paroxysmal activity consisting, at least in part, of spikes or sharp waves resembling those found in many patients with epilepsy. It is not synonymous with an electrographic seizure, which typically consists of rhythmic repetitive activity having a relatively abrupt onset and termination, a characteristic evolution, and lasting at least several seconds.

The maximum leakage current for patient-connected parts is chosen to give a safety margin by a factor of 10, assuming that a conductive line from ground to the sinoatrial node has been inserted. The IEC601 standard has three different values based on three different classifications: (1) type B (nonisolated); (2) type BF (isolated); and (3) type CF (ultra-isolated for direct cardiac contact). Loss of earth ground to the instrument is considered a possible fault condition, and the safety standards limit the leakage current that could possibly flow from the instrument through the operator or patient to earth ground.
