Figure 1: EEG recording and EKG lead during syncope. Annotations of the technician are reproduced above the recording. EEG slowing starts in response to an asystole lasting for 10.5 s with occurrence of slow large delta waves and the EEG flattens for a similar period but with a delay. Then EEG modified in the reverse order as the cardiac rhythm normalized. Myoclonic jerks occurred during recording causing artifacts on EKG. The boy regained consciousness as the EEG activity normalized. EEG: Electroencephalogram
