In performance of an intracarotid sodium amytal test duration of action is a critical factor since measurements obtained after cessation of action are invalid. Duration of action is often monitored by measuring handstrength contralateral to injection or by visual inspection of amytal-induced EEG slow waves ipsilateral to injection. We describe new objective methods of monitoring drug effect: quantified EEG and sensory discrimination. In a first study of patients with scalp electrodes, the two… CONTINUE READING
