The Ambulatory EEG Test (aEEG) is a safe and effective, non-invasive, in-home procedure for validating the diagnosis of neuro-related conditions.
An aEEG is used to evaluate brain activity. Brain cells communicate with each other through electrical impulses. By tracking this brain wave activity and correlating the brain wave activity with video, detection of potential medical conditions is possible.
When should you have an Ambulatory EEG?
Transient Alteration of Awareness
Altered Mental Status
Dizziness / Vertigo (Spells)
Post Traumatic Seizures
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Nonpsychotic Mental Disorders
Abnormal Involuntary Movements
Concussions / Head injury
Memory Loss / Amnesia
Syncope and Collapse (Fainting)
Traumatic Brain Injury
Neuro testing is conducted in the comfort and safety of your own home.
An Ambulatory EEG with Video Test allows the patient to be monitored for up to 72 hours in their own home. The Ambulatory EEG with Video Test records both brainwaves and video at the same time. This allows the physician to see what is happening when the patient has a seizure or event and compare the picture to the EEG recording. Sounds that occur during the testing are also recorded so that the interpreting neurologist can tell if the seizure or event was related to the electrical activity in the brain.
A routine electroencephalogram (REEG) is a diagnostic test that detects electrical activity in your brain using electrodes attached to your scalp. Your brain cells communicate via electrical impulses always active, even when you’re asleep. The electrical activity is then displayed on a graph as an EEG recording. The most common type of EEG test is called a Routine EEG; the test itself is 20 to 40 minutes in length and is typically done in a physician’s office.
Your first appointment will be a Telemedicine/ video consultation with a doctor. If further testing is prescribed, a technician will come to your home at the scheduled time to set up and conduct the testing.
