Disorganized activity of 7-8 c/sec alpha theta mix with delta waves nearly symetrical & synchronous over both hemisphere general cerebral dysrhythmia?

Disorganized activity of 7-8 c/sec alpha theta mix with delta waves nearly symetrical & synchronous over both hemisphere
general cerebral dysrhythmia?

Question?: If you are trying to assess the meaning of this EEG finding, it is best to go over it with your ordering physician. The EEG is meaningless without a clinical context, which presumably is why it was ordered. Speak to the ordering physician. ...Read more

Are P waves present in SVT AND is SVT and ST distinguishable on a EKG?

Are P waves present in SVT AND is SVT and ST distinguishable on a EKG?

P wave are not pres: P waves are not present in SVT and SVT and ST are distinguishable on EKG. P waves are due to depolarization of the atria from natural pacemaker cells in the right Atria. SVT are from pacemaker cells in the AV node (between atrium and ventricles). SVT are by nature EKG rhythms without p waves. ST is a time period between the QRS complex and the T wave. In SVT the ST period is still present. ...Read more

Are binaural beats helpful in making new neural pathway connections in brain ?

Are binaural beats helpful in making new neural pathway connections in brain ?

No: Binaural beats have been studied for decades by neurophysiologists for clues to how the brain processes sensory input. Studies I've seen suggest that they MAY elicit transient alterations in some aspects of mood or cognition. I've seen NOTHING to substantiate the ludicrous claims made by the binaural-beat lunatic fringe on YouTube etc., whose enthusiasm far outstrips their understanding. ...Read more

Epileptic Focus..: This is an area, of non-specific injury, such as old head trauma, hold stroke, or some type of ongoing issue in this area, that's causing the nerves to fire in a regular fashion, putting you at risk for seizures. ...Read more

Is a delta wave in my ECG harmful?

Is a delta wave in my ECG harmful?

It depends.: Delta waves are present in patients with wolf-parkinson-white syndrome (wpw). This condition can be associated with rapid arrhytmias. In some patients it may be asymptomatic. Patients with serious rhythm disorders can be treated with ablation of the accessory electrical pathway which results in abolition of the arrhythmias. At experienced centers the success rate is very good. ...Read more

During sleep background activity consist of symmetrically bisynchonous, fairly developed medium voltage 4-5 Hertz theta waves seen best posteriorly. ?

During sleep background activity consist of symmetrically bisynchonous, fairly developed medium voltage 4-5 Hertz theta waves seen best posteriorly. 	?

Normal for age: I suspect you've left out some additional information but this appears to be normal for his age to me. The posterior rhythm they mention may be a tad slow but then, again this is during sleep with eyes closed so it's fine. Are they looking for seizures or is he very lethargic? Looks like pneumonia is under condition so I'm wondering if he's battling with that now or that's a previous condition ...Read more

Is asd of the heart linked with autism in anyway?

Not really: There are chromosomal disorders that have ASD and developmental delay as primary features, but that would be the only link. Di george syndrome and 22q11 syndrome, are two obvious examples. ...Read more

Can lupus directly impact the brain? Myoclonic seizures, major depression, GAD, major mood swings. No official diagnosis, but positive for antibodies.

Can lupus directly impact the brain? Myoclonic seizures, major depression, GAD, major mood swings. No official diagnosis, but positive for antibodies.

A few comments: Yes, lupus cerebritis can occur. Spinal fluid measure of P-ribosomal protein might help. Your myoclonic seizures could be Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy, and could benefit from Depakote or Keppra (levetiracetam). Your emotional state could be assessed by psychiatry. Recommend you see a neurologist, and have all of this looked at thoroughly. ...Read more

Does genetically modified food cause autism? Gmo's were released in the early 90s and since then autism cases increased by 600%. Are they safe to eat?

Does genetically modified food cause autism? Gmo's were released in the early 90s and since then autism cases increased by 600%. Are they safe to eat?

I believe it's safe: There's a huge amount of money to be made frightening people, and these folks have no reason to tell the truth (unlike physicians bound by law). Gmo's contain no substance that a reasonable person would worry about being toxic. The increased autism diagnosis rate reflects both awareness and politics (kids with "autism" get more resources.) and there's no a single non-fake scientific paper. ...Read more
