1. Patient state

The baby should be sleeping or in a quiet and relaxed state. Sucking, blinking, crying or movement may affect testing.


2. Skin preparation

If the baby’s skin is oily or covered in vernix, the electrode placement sites should be cleaned prior to placing the electrodes.
Use a conductive gel with the electrodes to improve impedances.


Place electrodes

Place surface electrodes using the specified test montage for the selected protocol (mastoid or nape).


Connect cables

Connect the cables from the preamplifier to the respective surface electrodes.

To reduce the chance of electrical interference, ensure that the electrode cables are placed away from the insert earphone or EarCup transducer box.
