Answer

Wachter et al recently studied the use of multimodal electrophysiological monitoring to predict the outcome after subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). [12] They could not find a correlation between initial and last median, as well as tibial, SEP. Therefore, they concluded that these studies cannot be used as valid predictors for outcome after SAH.
