Ambulatory EEG

  Why do I need one? The brain’s electrical activity fluctuates from second to second, but routine EEGs provide only a 20- to 40-minute sample of this activity. If epilepsy waves occur in your brain only once every 3 or 4 hours, or if they only happen at certain times of day, a regular EEG[…]

Video EEG

What is a Video EEG test? A Video EEG test records your brainwaves on an EEG and a video of what is going on at the same time. The purpose is to be able to see what is happening when you have a seizure or event and compare the picture to what the EEG records at the same[…]

Have You Ever Wondered About the EEG?

1. The EEG test, electroencephalography, is a 20- to 45-minute procedure that provides information about brain function with the use of electrodes or electrode based EEG caps. 2. Marked with a grease pencil, measurements of circumference calculate where electrodes will be placed on the scalp. Equidistant electrodes ensure an exact recording of the entire brain.[…]

Cleaning and Disinfection of Greentek Cup Electrodes

A routine schedule for the cleaning and Disinfection of Cup Electrodes helps assure accurate EEG signals and the reuse of electrodes between different participants. Methode: Clean the residual paste off the electrode cups. Dunk the electrode cups in hot–not quite boiling–water three or four quick dunks, and the paste melts away and leaves them clean. Don’t[…]
