When does the C-wave occur on a CVP waveform? cwavesoccurwhenthe ventricles begin to contract – Caused partly by slight backflow of blood into the atria at the onset of ventricular contraction, but mainly by bulging of the tricuspid valve backward toward the atria because of increasing pressure in the RV

What do cannon A waves mean on a CVP? AV dissociation - right atrium contracting against closed tricuspid valve
What system determines the overall level of CNS activity, including wakefulness and sleep? Reticular Activating System
Most of our sleep is what wave sleep? It's slow-wave sleep, which is also known as delta-wave sleep.
What is desynchronized sleep, and what waves are characterized by it? Desynchronized sleep, which is known by beta waves on the EEG. These are similar to those that occur during wakefulness.
What type of waves disappear during sleep? Alpha waves, they are typical of an awake, resting state
What are theta waves? They occur in healthy children during sleep and in general anesthesia.
What are delta waves? These waves occur in deep sleep, during general anesthesia, or in the presence of organic brain disease; this suggests the cerebral cortex is released from the RAS-activation.
