Stimulators, Electrical, Brain, Anesthesia
Definition : Devices that apply stimuli (typically pulsed electric currents of 5 to 50 mA) to a patient's brain for several minutes to induce a state resembling that of chemically induced anesthesia. These stimulators usually include an electric-pulse generator with controls to vary pulse rate, pulse width, and voltage or current. The current is normally passed through the head between the frontal and occipital regions via large-area electrodes covered with saline-soaked gauze sponges.
