Automatic Identification of Peak V in Brainstem Auditory Evoked Potentials

  • A. R. Møller
Conference paper


The need for automatic interpretation of evoked potentials for use in intraoperative monitoring and for monitoring of critically ill patients in intensive care units is discussed. A computer algorithm for automatic identification and continuous tracking of peak V of brainstem auditory evoked potentials (BAEP) is described.
