What to Expect for Adults

Neurotech's In-Home Monitored EEG for Adults

Before your appointment:

  • Please plan to stay home for the duration of your in-home EEG study.
  • It is critically important for your physician and Neurotech monitoring staff to access your EEG daily.
  • A Neurotech EEG technologist will call you 24-48 hours before the scheduled appointment to confirm the date and time, explain the procedure, and complete health questionnaire.

The day of your EEG hookup - Patient Safety:

  • Your safety is our priority! Neurotech follows the CDC’s and local health department’s recommendations for infection control during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Neurotech technologists use appropriate personal protective equipment and follow appropriate infection control precautions.
  • If you or any members of your household have symptoms or were exposed to COVID-19 please let us know and we will reschedule your visit. 

EEG Hookup Appointment:

  • A Neurotech EEG technologist will come to your home to set up and start the study.
  • The technologist will measure and mark your head and apply 21-23 EEG electrodes to record your brain’s electrical activity.
  • Once the EEG electrodes are in place, your head will be wrapped with a conforming bandage to make sure the EEG wires remain secure.
  • The technologist will explain how the equipment works, how to mark events and seizures, and how to contact Neurotech support staff during the EEG.
  • In-home EEG appointments usually last about 1.5 - 2 hours.
  • A Neurotech laptop will be left with you in the home to facilitate remote monitoring. If your EEG requires video, a camera will also be left with you in the home.
  • During your EEG, it is critically important to stay in the same room as the recording laptop and, if it is a Video EEG, in the camera's view. This way your physician and Neurotech's monitoring staff will be able to access your EEG throughout the recording.

Remote Monitoring:

  • A Neurotech monitoring technologist will log in and remotely check the integrity of the recording throughout the duration of the study.
  • The remote monitoring technologist may call you if they notice a problem with the electrodes' connectivity or if the laptop signal is lost.
  • An on-call technologist may be dispatched back to your home to troubleshoot and fix any problems.
  • Neurotech remote monitoring technologists are available 24/7 to answer any questions or concerns. Please feel free to call Neurotech's Support line at (866) 641-1777.
  • When you are ready to end your EEG, a Neurotech monitoring technologist will stop the recording remotely and assist you with disconnection.
  • The EEG equipment will be picked up from your home promptly.
