Abstract

Evoked potentials (EP) are more sensitive than specific, safe, objective and reproducible neurophysiologic techniques to assess integrity of peripheral and central sensory and motor pathways. The integrity of pathways are determined by measurement the latency of the recorded and digitally averaged electrical events elicited after adequate stimulation. EP are medically and surgically recommended in conditions in which the diagnoses, determination of neurological outcome in comatose and under anesthesia patients, and determination of the course and evaluation of treatment are uncertain with neurologic examination, and other neurodiagnostic studies.
