Hello. Welcome to JA. I am a neurologist and will answer your questions. The eeg was abnormal with an increase in slower waves (delta waves) in the right temporal region. The amount of generalized slowing seen in the entire record suggested that this was a sleep study, that she was sleeping during the EEG, or under the influence of medications like phenobarbital or Ativan (lorazepam) that might have been given for a reason. Did your daughter have a seizure or some trauma? This record said that them normal percentages of beta, alpha, theta and delta waves (normal admixture) was missing from the right hemisphere. That would suggest a problem specific to the right hemisphere, it could be a stroke or a tumor or an infection, it is non-specific. Please get back to me to discuss this further if I can help, or rate this reply if satisfied. thanks *****
