Electroencephalogram (EEG)

An EEG is a painless test that records brain waves using highly sensitive monitoring equipment. By mea­suring the changes in the brain’s activity, EEGs can evaluate and help diagnose possible conditions such as epilepsy, seizure disorders, stroke, brain tumors, head trauma, headaches, and other disorders of the neurological system and nervous system. To begin the evaluation process through (EEG), electrodes, which are connected to thin wires, are painlessly applied to the scalp using a special adhesive. The wires are then connected to a small box which communicates brain activity to the EEG’s monitoring equipment and computer software. During the test, various vi­sual stimuli may be introduced, such as bright lights to observe the brain’s reaction.

AirEEG™

North Cypress Epilepsy Center also utilizes AirEEG™, a technology that allows wireless communication between the pa­tient and computer software. This technology allows patients to travel freely to certain areas around the patient floor, without being confined to their room. The device that communicates EEG information from the individual to the monitoring equipment is simply tucked into a small backpack and taken with the patient.
