The resultant fall in arterial PCO2 leads to cerebral vasoconstriction and thus to mild cerebral anoxia. 4 Certain quantitative techniques have been suggested in an endeavor to establish a more uniform procedure, but these methods are not in routine use. The EEG is recorded during the period of hyperventilation and for the following 2 minutes, with the use of a montage that encompasses the area where it is suspected, based on clinical or other grounds, that abnormalities may be found; or, in the absence of any localizing clues, an area that covers as much of the scalp as possible.
The recording arrangements can be varied, or the EEG can be reconstructed after digital recording, so that the potential difference is measured either between pairs 39 of scalp electrodes (bipolar derivation) or between individual electrodes and a common reference point. , the vertex or the linked ears) or a point connected to all the electrodes in use so that it reflects the average of the potentials at these electrodes. Each technique has its own advantages and drawbacks, but for routine purposes at least two of these methods for deriving the EEG are used.
The more detailed technical and practical aspects of EEG recording are beyond the scope of this chapter. There is, however, one general point that must be made clear. As already indicated, the potential difference between pairs of electrodes—or between an electrode and its reference point—is amplified before being displayed on moving paper or an oscilloscope screen. The input leads of the individual amplifiers are designated as black (input terminal 1, or G1) and white (input terminal 2, or G2).
