Presentation of equipment: the monitor of cerebral function

Annales de l'anesthésiologie française
M Dubois


From a pair of parietal electrodes, an original apparatus--the monitor of cerebral function--gives a non-stop recording of the brain electric activity for frequencies ranging from 2 to 15 Hertz. It is at the moment less expensive than an ordinary EEG apparatus, easy to carry, to use and to read. The artefacts, interferences or technical defects are either totally eliminated or immediately detected thanks to a parallel graph. It is the first apparatus that has been conceived and used as a routine instrument for cerebral monitoring. It can be used in the Intensive Care Unit as well as in the Operating Theatre:--preventively, whenever there is a risk of an alteration in the cerebral circulation (CEC - extracorporal circulation - for instance - as a diagnosis, a prognosis or a therapy when there is a cerebral lesion (whatever the origin of it can be). The use of this apparatus (that has now become part of the daily routine at the London Hospital) has quickly proved indispensable and the common EEG is no longer being resorted to except upon very few occasions.

About this Paper

Trending Feeds


Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal Myelitis

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease by recent genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research.
