...Does anyone know what PLEDS (or something to that effect) on an EEG means??? Supposedly a fatal finding in an EEG... ? Had a patient who had this finding on an EEG and family later elected to withdraw all support; he subsequently died. Any web site on EEG's or references would be most appreciated.
