Monitor de ondas cerebrales

La prueba de respuesta auditiva evocada del tronco del encéfalo (RAETE) se realiza para diagnosticar anomalías del sistema nervioso, pérdidas auditivas (especialmente en niños de bajo peso al nacer) y para evaluar las funciones neurológicas. La prueba se enfoca en los cambios y respuestas de las ondas cerebrales. Las ondas cerebrales son estimuladas por un sonido de golpecito seco con el fin de evaluar los trayectos auditivos centrales del tronco del encéfalo.Monitor de ondas cerebrales
