Routine EEG Study

An EEG Routine Study is a 20 minute painless test recording that measures the electrical activity in the brain by placing leads on your scalp using a paste and then performing a series of breathing exercises, flashing lights and resting time. The entire appointment takes about an hour. It records all of the patients brainwaves, picking up any potential abnormalities and the data goes to a physician to interpret once the study is complete.

Step One: Set Up 

 A tech places 21 wires on the patients head and two to three on the chest for the heart rate using a conductive paste and electrodes. Before placing each electrode, an exfoliate gel is used to prep the skin and pick up any oils to ensure a good connection.

 

 

Note: Please be sure to wash and dry hair before the study begins. This helps electrodes to get the most accurate connection.

Step Two: Stimulatory Exercises

Depending on age and health, patients are walked through a couple of exercises designed to stimulate the brain. That including…

  • HV: In this one the patient is asked to breathe quicker and heavier than normal for three minutes
  • Photic: In this one the patient is asked to look at a light that flashes in intervals of 10 seconds

Step Three: Rest 

The patient is asked to try to take a nap for the remainder of the time or just keep their eyes closed and relax. 

Step Four: Disconnect

The tech takes off wires in a painless swift manner. From there the data goes to the patients physician who will interpret the data. Once the data is interpreted the patient will get results back. This normally takes  7 to 10 business days, two weeks at the most. 

 

Note: It is recommended to bring a hat. There will be left over paste in the hair, but it just washes out with warm water. 

Long Term / Ambulatory EEG Study

A Long Term / Ambulatory EEG Study is a painless test recording of the electrical activity in the brain by placing leads on your scalp using a paste, then wrapping your head in gauze and wearing the equipment while you do normal activities within the home. It will record while awake and asleep. The length is typically 24-96 hours, depending on the orders from the doctor. 

Step One: Set Up 

 A tech places 21 wires on the patients head and two to three on the chest for the heart rate using a conductive paste and electrodes. Before placing each electrode, an exfoliate gel is used to prep the skin and pick up any oils to ensure a good connection. Once the leads are on, medical taping and gauze is wrapped around the head to ensure the leads stay in place. All of the wires get covered up and the head-box is place in a bag which the patient will wear around them.

 

Note: Please be sure to wash and dry hair before the study begins. Also, it is recommended to wear a button down shirt for this study, so the patient doesn’t have to worry about pulling anything over their head should they choose to change during the duration of the study.

Step Two: Day to Day Routine

Once everything is on, the patient is free to do normal activities in the home. The patient will want to try to stay in range of the tablet and camera majority of the time throughout the study. The range is about 20 to 30 feet. During testing you will have a technologist on-call 24 hours a day that can will assist you with any questions or concerns. 

 

Note: Once the study begins, no bath or shower and the patient will want to try their best to stay cool and not sweat to keep moisture from getting on the equipment. 

Step Three: Disconnect  

The tech goes out to the patient’s home and takes off the gauze, medical taping and leads in a painless swift manner using a spray that makes is come off with ease. From there they pick up all of the equipment. This process usually takes less and 30 minutes. From there the data goes to the patients physician who will interpret the study. Once the data is interpreted the patient will get results back. This normally takes 3 to 4 weeks.

 

Note: There will be left over paste in the hair, but it just washes out with warm water.
