Pediatric ERGs can be performed without general anesthesia, although oral sedation is sometimes necessary (Fig 3-8). Anesthesia can depress the ERG responses. 8 I I I l I Latency difference I I , = 9 ms , I ' Time scale = 5 ms/div Time scale= 5 ms/div ERG in central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO). The right eye is normal. The affected left eye shows a mild reduction in b-wave amplitude but a striking delay in the latency of the flicker responses. The implicit time (arrows) of the responses from the left eye is longer than the interval between peaks, a sign that is strongly suggestive of diffuse damage to the retina .
