In critical care, every second counts. Zeto's portable EEG system cuts through complexity, offering a seamless solution that far out-delivers the competitors. Is it cumbersome? Far from it. Is it fast? Absolutely. Is it complete? With full-montage capabilities versus other...

EEG after Cardiac Arrest is Vital, Says American Heart Association

The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends prompt electroencephalography (EEG) neuroprognostication for post-cardiac arrest patients in their 2020 guidelines on cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and emergency cardiovascular care (ECC). The prompt use of EEG in post-cardiac arrest patients is important because it...

Enhancing Diagnostic Precision: Exploring the Role of Video EEG

Video EEG is an important tool in diagnosing and monitoring patients with epilepsy or other neurological conditions. It helps distinguish physiologic or external artifacts from epileptic seizures or epileptiform discharges associated with seizures. Video EEG also helps to differentiate epileptic...

ZETO – ERP EVENT MARKER INTEGRATION

Event Related Potentials (ERPs) in EEG provide insight into how our brain processes information, reacts to its environment and adapts to challenges. ERPs differ from the traditional clinical tradition of evaluating continuous spontaneous brainwaves in patients. With ERPs, experimenters can...

Zeto’s Reliable EEG Headset: Built to Withstand the Daily Grind

As a healthcare professional, you know how important it is to have reliable equipment that can withstand the daily grind of a busy medical practice. That’s why we designed Zeto EEG – a rugged, clinical-grade headset that is built to...

Don’t Sweat It: Managing Sweating Artifact During EEG Recordings

Sweat artifacts are a common problem in electroencephalography (EEG) recordings. They can noticeably affect the quality of the recorded tracings and make it difficult to read the underlying EEG signals. Sweat artifacts in EEGs occur when the body’s biological sweat...

Bringing EEG to Rural Areas with Remote EEG Monitoring

The profound lack of access to EEG outside of urban academic centers is a substantial health disparity. Most rural and suburban hospitals do not have the EEG equipment or trained staff available to obtain and read EEG studies. Thus, they...

Billing for Zeto: Zeto EEG Billing CPT Codes

It is important to use the appropriate CPT codes when seeking reimbursement by payers for covered outpatient procedures, including routine and long-term EEG studies.  This article aims to provide guidance on potentially applicable CPT procedure codes for EEG while using...

EEG in the ICU: Why, When, and How

Introduction EEGs are an invaluable tool for monitoring real-time brain function at the bedside in the ICU. Nonconvulsive seizures and nonconvulsive status epilepticus in the ICU are very shockingly common. Now that continuous EEG monitoring (cEEG) has entered clinical practice, we...

How to alleviate burnout for EEG technologists

As with all healthcare professions, neurodiagnostic technologists struggle with staffing shortages, unpredictable situations, and caring for patients with life-threatening physiological disorders. While many healthcare roles have shortages, qualified neurodiagnostic technologists are a rare breed and positions can go unfilled for...

Electroencephalogram (EEG) as a Biomarker in Dementia

The Electroencephalogram (EEG) can be used as a Biomarker for Dementia. This decades-old technology is finding new life in modern neuroscience. Old Dog Introduced to neurologists for the detection and classification of epilepsy by Frederick Gibbs' in 1934, electroencephalography (EEG)...

The Therapeutic Potential of EEG Neurofeedback in treating Covid-19 Induced Neuropsychiatriatric and Cognitive Symptoms

The Covid-19 pandemic has had negative effects on the health and well-being of many individuals around the world, often leaving persistent decreases in quality of life in the post-acute phase of illness. Studies of survivors across the globe, including the...

The Role of EEG for Epilepsy Diagnosis, Management and Classification

People with epilepsy typically experience recurrent seizures. Despite the diverse causes of seizures, the common mechanism linking many types of epilepsy is the disruption of the brain's normal electrical activity, which temporarily halts communication between neurons. About 60% of epilepsy...

Active And Passive Electrodes – What Are They, Pros & Cons

When the British physician Richard Caton first recorded the brain’s electrical activity on a rabbit in the late 19th century he didn’t know his groundbreaking experiment would inspire the invention of a line of revolutionary technologies that turned out to...
