ABSTRACT

The authors of this monograph, writing from long interest and great experience with electroencephalography in anesthesia, have compiled a very useful volume. There are 2 stated purposes which are well fulfilled. The first is the provision of a firm background in the clinical application of the EEG. In the early pages, the genesis of the EEG is discussed, as well as the effects of physiological variables. A brief but adequate discussion of instrumentation and interpretation of records follows. In achieving their second goal, that of providing a source of information for the practicing anesthesiologist, the authors have been eminently successful. The bulk of the monograph consists of an excellently organized, well-illustrated, and concisely written review of EEG patterns associated with anesthesia and surgery. The EEG effects of each anesthetic are described and tabulated in a hypothetical sequence of cerebral depression. This approach permits a logical classification of the EEG patterns
