  • Electroencephalography (EEG) 

The EEG is a measurement of electronic activities and impulses in different parts of the brain. It is a test used to detect potential problems by tracking and recording brain wave patterns with the use of small, metal discs (electrodes) attached to the scalp.

This non-invasive procedure can ultimately be used to confirm brain death but is primarily useful in the diagnosis and treatment of such conditions as seizures, epilepsy, head injuries, dizziness, headaches, brain tumors or sleeping disfunctions.

 

How do you tell if you would require EEG? What should you do and not do before the test, or what can you consume so as not to influence the recording and mislead your specialists?
