“:Here’s a great example of an EEG. Let’s work through it together so you can start learning to interpret.
First, we look at the first run. See, all 10-11 and d4-6 low voltage. So that’s okay, right? And here we have some occipital slowing – probably not going to get to show you a vertex sharp wave, but – OH! A sharp transient! More on the right, reflected on the left… See? Might be artifactual, thouigh – you don’t want to overread.
So to localize further, obviously we need to check back to the double banana . And see how we’ve got a sharpish transient with some 3-4 in the parietal? Nothing too exciting, clearly. And here – see, the hypnagogic hypersensitivity – wow – that just comes right out and says “young person going to sleep”, doesn’t it?
That is, of course, unless the patient is still hyperventilating. I don’t know, could go either way. What do you think?”
