EEG and LTM
An electroencephalogram (EEG) helps analyze brain wave function.
Electrodes/probes are placed on the scalp to record the brain’s electrical impulses. The test can last from 45 minutes to longer depending on the test ordered.
Ambulatory EEG is a test of your brainwave EEG.
Unlike the routine EEG that typically is done in the office and only lasts 20-30 minutes, the ambulatory EEG is performed in the comfort of your home and is run typically for one to several days.
EMG & NCS
An EMG (Electro-Myography) test measures the electrical activity of your muscles at rest and when you tighten them. It helps to find diseases that damage muscles or nerves, why you cannot move your muscles (paralysis), why they feel weak, or why they twitch.
Nerve Conduction studies (NCS) measure the integrity of the nerves and their abilities to send and/or receive electrical signals. They help to find damage to the nerves that lead from the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body (periperhal nervous system), and are often used to help find nerve disorders such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
Monitoring: Epilepsy & Critical Care
Electroencephalography (EEG) is an important and relatively inexpensive tool that allows intensivists to monitor cerebral activity of critically ill patients in real time. Seizure detection in patients with and without acute brain injury is the primary reason to obtain an EEG in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
Detection of NCSE and brain ischemia
Faster treatment = improved outcomes
Monitoring efficacy of treatment.
Assist clinicians and family members in ongoing treatment decisions
Advantages for facilities: Shorter ICU stays for Patients
