BAERs are considered experimental and investigational for all other indications because their effectiveness for indications other than the ones listed above has not been established. ** Also known as auditory evoked potentials (AEPs), brainstem auditory evoked potentials.
(Evoked Brain Potentials, Evoked Responses, Visual Evoked Response [VER], Brainstem Auditory Evoked Response [BAER], Auditory Brainstem Evoked Potentials [ABEP] or alternatively termed Brainstem Auditory Evoked Potentials.
Comparisons of SEP, visual evoked potential (VEP), and brainstem auditory evoked potential (BAEP) have found that VEP testing and SEP testing are about equally sensitive for revealing clinically unsuspected lesions and that BAEP is one half to one third less sensitive. The 3 tests should be viewed as complementary.
Therefore the entire length of the pathway tested can be assessed for normal function, and with greater sensitivity than that achieved with scans. Nerves convey information via electrical signals. These signals can be recorded by wires placed over the nerves on the surface of the skin, in a procedure called an evoked potential (EP) study. Analysis of the signals can provide information about the condition of nerve pathways, especially those in the brain and spinal cord. Visual, sensory and brainstem auditory evoked potentials.
Long and Allen [3] reported the abnormal brainstem auditory evoked potentials (BAEP) in an alcoholic woman who recovered from Ondine's curse. These investigators hypothesized that their patient's brainstem was poisoned, but not destroyed, by her chronic alcoholism.
