A Comparative Study of Global 12 Lead Electroencephalogram to Frontal SedlineTM Electroencephalogram
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
The fundamental reason for comparing the ability of the Frontal Sedline TM Electroencephalogram (PSA EEG) to standard Global 12 Lead Electroencephalogram (EEG) for burst suppression detection is to determine if a less expensive, less invasive and possibly more convenient bifrontal EEG monitor can be effective for evaluation of anesthesia-induced intraoperative burst suppression therapy (IBST) for cerebral protection.
