What is my role during the monitoring?
Your role is important for safe and successful monitoring. Follow these guidelines to aid the monitoring process.
What can I bring from home to pass the time?
What happens after the recording is completed? When video-EEG recording is completed, the EEG leads are removed with acetone (solution similar to nail polish remover which dissolves the glue). After the EEG electrodes are removed, you may be permitted to wash your hair in the shower. Apply conditioner to your wet hair after washing it. Keep the cream rinse in your hair for about ten minutes to soften the glue. Comb through your hair and then rinse it to help remove the remaining glue particles. The glue may continue to flake from your hair for a few days or through several shampoos.
Your physician may order additional tests once the monitoring is complete. Your physician may discuss the preliminary results and treatment plans with you while in the hospital, but may also arrange a follow-up appointment for final discussion of the results and recommendations.
