background EEG > reactivity


Change in cerebral EEG activity to stimulation: Yes, No, or Unclear/unknown/not applicable. This may include change in amplitude or frequency, including attenuation of activity. Strength and/or nature of stimulus should be noted. Appearance of muscle activity or eye blink artifacts does not qualify as reactive.

If the only form of reactivity is SI-RDA, SI-PDs or SI-seizures, categorize as “Reactive, SIRPIDs only”)
