To obtain continuous information about the cerebral electrical activity in the early course of coma, an apparatus was designed which included a small fast computer capable of calculating the Fourier transform. The practical application of this system of CSA to 123 comatose patients in a neurosurgical intensive care unit overcame the technical difficulties connected both with the patient's and environmental conditions. The advantages of such a technique are mainly due to its capacity of… CONTINUE READING
