1. A 25-year-old woman with partial seizures was admitted to the ITU from the neurology ward after a 45-minute generalized tonic-clonic seizure. The seizure had not resolved with benzodiazepines or phenytoin. It was decided to perform a rapid sequence induction in order to intubate, ventilate, and sedate the patient with a propofol infusion.

On examination, she was apyrexial with a heart rate of 120 beats per minute and a blood pressure (BP) of 105/80 mmHg. Her respiratory rate was set on the ventilator at 16 breaths per minute and oxygen saturation was 99% with FiO2 of 30%.

The patient had continuous EEG monitoring attached to her scalp.

What EEG pattern would indicate that the patient was sedated adequately?
