ROUTINE AND AMBULATORY ELECTROENCEPHALOGRAM (AEEG)
EEG measures the brain electrical activity. Your brain waves and determine whether there are any clues for abnormal electrical activity in the brain. EEG aids in the diagnosis of epilepsy/seizures, fainting spells, blackout spells, confusion, amnesia/memory lapses or confusion. A routine EEG is done in the office and brain waves and recorded for 30 minutes. For an ambulatory EEG the patient is monitored for 48 or 72 hours depending on the clinical evaluation. The process involves placing small surface electrodes on the head/scalp. These electrodes will be connected to a recording device. For Ambulatory EEG you will carry home the portable recording device. The recording will continue as long as you have not dislodged the electrodes. When you return the technician will remove the electrodes and download the data collected for analysis. Dr. Samuel will review the result with you on your follow up visit.
