A method for obtaining electrocardiographic potential through thin cloth inserted between the measuring electrodes and the skin of a subject's dorsal surface when lying supine has been proposed. The method is based on capacitive coupling involving the electrode, the cloth, and the skin. Examination of a pilot device which employed the method revealed the(More)
Brain-stem auditory-evoked potentials were recorded in neurosurgical patients from surface electrodes applied to the VIIIth nerve, medulla, pons, midbrain and cortex; from depth electrodes in the thalamus; and from a movable electrode in the IVth, IIIrd, and lateral ventricles. The potentials recordable over the scalp within 10 ms after click stimulation(More)
OBJECTIVE We aimed to determine whether or not the potential distribution of the sympathetic skin response (SSR) on the palm and dorsum of the hand can be described by an equivalent current dipole (ECD) as an SSR source model. METHODS The SSR of 22 normal subjects were simultaneously obtained from two electrodes placed on the palm and the dorsum of hand,(More)
A new system has been developed for obtaining electrographic potential through thin underwear inserted between the measuring electrodes and the skin of a neonate or an infant when lying supine. The system is based on capacitive coupling involving the electrode, the underwear, and the skin. Validation of the system revealed the following: (1) the signal(More)
Simultaneous bilateral recordings (C3 to A1 and C4 to A2) of brain stem auditory evoked responses have been studied in 67 supratentorial lesions, nine midbrain lesions, 21 intrinsic pontine lesions, and 23 extrinsic compressions of the pons. The responses in supratentorial lesions showed completely normal records. In midbrain lesions, wave V was(More)
Sleep spindles in eight normal adults were analyzed automatically by a minicomputer. The accuracy of spindle detection was about 90%. Spindle wave frequency was measured by an approximation method for the spindle peaks; this method employed a quadratic equation on prior analog filtering. The accuracy of measurement was within 0.6 msec (SD 1). The average(More)
The monitoring technique for assessing suspected sleep apnea syndrome is a polysomnogram (PSG) performed in hospital. The typical PSG includes EEG, EOG, EMG, air flow at the nose and mouth, SO2, thoracicoabdominal motion and snoring sound. But the PSG test is expensive, and also is a stress load for the patient because this test requires recording(More)
