OBJECT: RECORD EEG DURING A SODIUM AMOBARBITAL EXAMINATION.

FINDINGS:

CONTINUOUS RECORDING: The EEG recording during the performance of this sodium
amobarbital (Wada) test began at 14:57:45. The background consisted of a
normal alpha frequency posterior dominant rhythm with appropriate attenuation
to eye opening. There was intermittent theta frequency slowing and
disorganization in the right posterior temporal region, centered at the T6
electrode, with intermixed sharp transients in that same area.
On review of the video and audio recording, an injection was made at
16:03:12. A few intermixed delta waves were seen broadly in the right
hemisphere shortly after that time, but no sustained slowing or change in
background were noted.

Another injection was made at 16:18:05. Again, a few delta waves were
seen broadly in the right hemisphere shortly after that time, but no sustained
slowing or change in background were noted.

The recording was terminated at 17:00:24.

SLEEP: The patient became drowsy at points during the recording but did not
fall asleep.

CARDIAC MONITOR: Showed a generally regular rhythm.

IMPRESSION: This EEG recording during a sodium amobarbital (Wada) examination
showed a normal alpha frequency background. Despite two amobarbital
injections, no sustained change in EEG was seen at any point, and the
recording was subsequently terminated.
