In a continuing study of the EEG as a monitor of cortical activity during anesthesia using a time-domain wave analyzer, the contamination of the EEG by scalp muscle activity was observed. A measure of this EMG activity was extracted from the combined EEG/EMG wave obtained from two electrodes placed over the left frontalis muscle and right mastoid process. Clinical work with this variable showed that the EMG can serve both as a reliable guide to patient muscular relaxation and an indicator of… CONTINUE READING
