background EEG > continuity > nearly continuous

nearly continuous continuous, but with occasional (<10% of the record) periods of attenuation or suppression. Describe typical duration of attenuation/suppression as above.
  • a. Nearly continuous with attenuation: periods of lower voltage are >10µV but <50% of the background voltage.
  • b. Nearly continuous with suppression: periods of lower voltage are <10 µV;
  • c. If suppressions/attenuations are stimulus-induced, code as “nearly continuous with SI-attenuation” or “…with SI-suppression”;
