It usually has an amplitude of less than about 30 mV. The amount of such activity varies considerably among normal subjects. Activity having a frequency between 18 and 25 Hz is usually more conspicuous during drowsiness, light sleep, and rapid eye movement (REM) sleep than during wakefulness. It may also be augmented by cognitive tasks. 11 Drug-induced fast activity is typically diffuse and symmetric over the two hemispheres. Focal or lateralized spontaneous beta activity, or asymmetric druginduced fast activity, raises the possibility of localized cerebral pathology.
The IEC601 standard has three different values based on three different classifications: (1) type B (nonisolated); (2) type BF (isolated); and (3) type CF (ultra-isolated for direct cardiac contact). Loss of earth ground to the instrument is considered a possible fault condition, and the safety standards limit the leakage current that could possibly flow from the instrument through the operator or patient to earth ground. The safety standards also deal with a variety of other possible hazards, including flammability of the instrument, maximal temperatures, mechanical stability and 33 strength, and warning labels.
