Skin safety is a big concern in the EEG community all year long. But during November, American Diabetes Month, it's a good time to focus on your diabetic patients, as they are some of the most vulnerable to skin injury and infection.
Brain mapping is typically used during epilepsy and tumor removal surgeries in the eloquent cortex. This includes areas near the temporal and frontal lobes where critical functions like speech, movement, hearing, vision, memory, and touch are centered.
A group of researchers out of Boston’s Massachusetts General Hospital recently established that electroencephalography (EEG) can also be used to determine brain age. That can serve as a biomarker for other brain processes.
The growth of computer-driven quantitative EEG is a good thing for neurodiagnostic technologists, despite the fears of job displacement. Techs can learn how to use it and be ready for the jobs it will create — and they can start now.
The quicker medical care is given, the more lives are saved and the less disability people suffer. What many do not know is that this phrase also applies to cases of epilepsy where EEG techs play vital roles.
The World Health Organization, the National Institutes of Health, and the Centers for Disease Control and Infection have all identified this disease as a ‘neglected parasitic infection’ – the numbers are up and it can be deadly
Electroencephalography plays an important role in diagnosing and treating epilepsy. For children this is especially important because a quick and accurate diagnosis can be crucial in preventing developmental delays and greater lifelong disability.
New research analyses the EEG data of patients positive for COVID-19 to look for patterns that might be linked to the disease brought on by the novel coronavirus. It has also brought EEG techs into the spotlight.
Hyperventilation, or fast breathing, as an activation technique during EEG testing can be an important diagnostic tool, especially in pediatrics. But considering COVID-19 and the risks of spreading virus particles, is it still worth doing? We asked the experts.
With EEG labs all over the country bringing patients back in, ASET-The Neurodiagnostic Society held a town hall and panelists agreed: Single-use EEG cup electrodes are the way to go. Read what they had to say.
The long-term negative impacts on a child’s health are known but scientists still want to learn just how much it takes to cause this negative effect, and what the mechanism of that effect looks like. We talked to a child neurologist to help us understand these latest findings.
The deadly and highly contagious nature of COVID-19 has added a new level of complexity to considering risk factors associated with reusable products. Many EEG labs are making the switch to single-use items, one industry expert says.
