Queston #8875Note

Wave 1 on BAEPs: electrical signal of CN 8 after a patient is given an auditory stimulus.

– Wave 2-5-> brainstem regions that are part of the auditory sensory pathway.

– bilateral absence of all waves > than wave 1 on BAEPs after a hypoxic ischemic injury suggest poor neurological outcome and brain death.

– Prolonged 3-5 interpeak latency or decreased wave V amplitude can be seen in patients with MS

– Acoustic neuromas-> prolonged wave 1-3 interpeak latency
