Automated analysis of the electroencephalogram as an objective measurement of hepatic encephalopathy for the individual patient was investigated. The mean dominant frequency of patients with grades 0 and 1 hepatic encephalopathy was in the normal range (greater than or equal to 6.4 Hz); grade 1 hepatic encephalopathy, however, was characterized by abnormal relative power of theta activity of more than 35%. Twelve out of 34 patients with clinical grade 0 hepatic encephalopathy also had an… CONTINUE READING
