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...

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...

Comparison of Dry Electrode EEG System with Conventional EEG System

The dry electrode EEG system is a new development in the field of diagnostic science, offering an alternative to the conventional wet electrode EEG system.  To replace the wet EEG setup in clinical settings, dry electrode headsets must convey high-quality...

A Guide to EEG Basics (Electroencephalography) & Devices Used

Every machine requires some circuitry or motherboard that controls the machine's functions and operations. Likewise, humans also possess a complex computing system inside the body: the brain. The brain's inner workings and connections are mysterious. An intricate system of neurons...
