  • Hypoxic-Ischemic Brain Injury

    Alpha-coma” denotes the conjunction of clinical coma with an electroencephalographic pattern resembling that of normal wakefulness and predominantly consisting of alpha activity[neurologyindia.com] A case of isolated theta pattern coma, followed by alpha pattern coma is reported.[researchgate.net] Its meaning is the same as the pattern of alpha coma and, in some records, the two standards can coexist (alpha-theta coma) 35.[scielo.br]

  • Stroke

    Its meaning is the same as the pattern of alpha coma and, in some records, the two standards can coexist (alpha-theta coma) 35.[scielo.br] Theta pattern coma, a variant of alpha pattern coma. Clin Electroencephalogr 1984;15:116-121. [ Links ] 41. Chaparro-Hernandez P.[scielo.br] The pathogenesis of alpha, theta or alpha-theta coma is still unknown and the value of these patterns in predicting outcome remains controversial 35.[scielo.br]

  • Stupor

    Hypoxia and drug intoxications can produce a number of abnormal EEG patterns such as burst suppression, alpha coma, and spindle coma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Diabetic Ketoacidosis

    The EEG pattern showed uniform alpha activity. Treatment with intravenous fluids, insulin and mannitol was started.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patient was in a coma, intubated and had tachycardia with poor peripheral perfusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Subacute Sclerosing Panencephalitis

    The patient's electroencephalography on admission showed an alpha coma pattern.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis presenting as schizophrenia with an alpha coma pattern in a child. J Child Neurol 2014;29:NP111-3. 4. Gadoth N.[ijpm.info]
