Burst-suppression is reactive to photic stimulation in comatose children with acquired brain injury.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Burst-suppression is an electroencephalographic pattern observed during coma. In individuals without known brain pathologies undergoing deep general anesthesia, somatosensory stimulation transiently increases the occurrence of bursts. We investigated the reactivity of burst-suppression in children with acquired brain injury. METHODS Intensive… (More)
