Answer

Answer

Initially, the clinician should scroll through the entire record to evaluate the quality of the recording and the usefulness of specific channels. The major stages should be identified and variability associated with the patient should be noted. Initial review of the biocalibration channels may also be helpful in highlighting general awake waveforms.
