Digital EEG

Digital EEG

 

DIGITAL ELECTROENCEPHALOGRAM (EEG)

What is a routine digital EEG?

EEG is a noninvasive test that measures the brain’s electrical activity. It’s one of the most important diagnostic tools that neurophysiologists use to detect epilepsy.

It’s essential to note that a single normal routine EEG can NOT rule out epilepsy.

The test becomes more sensitive if used to record brain activity for longer durations or even for a full 24 hours.

The procedure is generally safe and doesn’t pose any major risk.

 

What are the uses of routine digital EEG?

EEG is used to detect abnormal brain waves that may lead to the diagnosis of epilepsy.

Patients presenting with blackouts or who have been diagnosed with brain tumors may benefit from having an EEG test.

EEG is not used to identify levels of intelligence or detect memory problems.

EVOKED POTENTIALS

(VISUAL/AUDITORY/SOMATOSENSORY)

What are evoked potentials?

Evoked potentials (EPs) also known as ‘Evoked Responses’ monitor the electrophysiologic response of the nervous system to different stimuli

. The most common EPs in clinical practice are: Visual evoked potentials (VEPs), Somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) and Brainstem auditory evoked

potentials (BAEPs).

VEPs test the function of the visual pathway from the retina to the occipital cortex. BAEPs measure the function of the auditory nerve and auditory

pathways in the brainstem.

SEPs evaluate the transmission of the sensory pathway from peripheral

nerves to the cortex.

 

What are the uses of evoked potentials?

VEPs are used in the assessment of optic nerve especially in patients with optic neuritis and MS.

BAEPs are very useful in patients with acoustic neuroma.

SEPs may confirm or deny and suspicion of conduction block.

 

Evoked potentials at NeuroMed

Our team of experts provide highly accurate EPs and offer the most reliable reports.

Available at Heliopolis and Maadi

 

NERVE CONDUCTION STUDY (NCS)

ELECTROMYOGRAPHY (EMG)

 

What is a nerve conduction study and what’s an EMG?

NCS also known as ‘Nerve Conduction Velocity’ or NCV is a measurement of the speed of conduction of an electrical impulse through a particular nerve.

EMG is a similar study done at the same time but it monitors the muscular response to nerve stimulation rather than just the conduction speed.

 

What are the uses of NCS and EMG?

The studies are used in Guillain-Barré syndrome, Carpal tunnel syndrome and patients presenting with sciatic nerve or herniated disc complaints and many other neuromuscular disorders

 

 

NCS at NeuroMed

NeuroMed provides very accurate NCS and EMG tests conducted by our experts

Video & Sleep EEG

Video & Sleep EEG

 

VIDEO & SLEEP ELECTROENCEPHALOGRAM

What is a Video EEG test?

VEEG is a test that adds audio/video monitoring to routine EEG.It can be done during sleep for long-term monitoring.

VEEG uses a camera that captures the patient’s physical activity in real-time and synchronizes it with the electrical activity monitored by the electrodes.

 

What are the uses of VEEG?

Having a video evidence of the seizure provides the physician with confidence to start treatment.

VEEG is used to detect the exact moment of an epileptic activity and provides a better understanding of the seizures as well as infrequent interictal activity that may be missed on routine EEG.

 

VEEG at NeuroMed

NeuroMed provides a state-of-the-art VEEG unit with highly advanced equipment and trained personnel.

Sleep Study

Sleep Study

 

CPAP/BIPAP TITRATION

What is a CPAP titration study?

Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is the most important the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

A CPAP titration study is similar to polysomnography, but additionally the patient is attached to a CPAP device to detect the optimum parameters needed to treat their apnea.

What are the uses of a sleep study?

CPAP parameters are not the same for every patient and needs to be personalized.

The titration is needed to calibrate the parameters of the CPAP therapy to suit the patient.

CPAP titration study at NeuroMed

NeuroMed maintains the highest quality in sleep studies and provides patient with the most accurate parameters for their CPAP therapy

Available at Heliopolis and Maadi also Available as portable service at home.

POLYSOMNOGRAPHY (SLEEP STUDY)

What is a sleep study?

Polysomnography is a test that monitors multiple physiological parameters related to sleep.

EEG is used to monitor brain activity during sleep, eye movements are tracked using electrooculography (EOG), while body movements are recorded using surface electromyography (EMG), ECG monitors cardiac activity and pulse oximetry tracks oxygen saturation and air flow is monitored using special sensors .

What are the uses of a sleep study?

Polysomngraphy is used to detect several sleep disorders especially the diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

It’s used to evaluate insomnia (disorders of initiating or maintaining sleep)

Also used to detect parasomnia (disorders of abnormal movements or behavior during sleep).

Polysomngraphy at NeuroMed

NeuroMed is a nationally-acclaimed sleep medicine center, we provide a unique advanced service that’s unmatched across Egypt.

 

Available at Heliopolis, New Cairo and Maadi.

(Also available for patients at home)

ACTIGRAPHY

What is Actigraphy?

Actigraphy is method of monitoring sleep/wakefulness patterns.

A small device that looks like a wrist watch is worn by the patient for up to a week. The sleep actigraph collects data about the circadian rhythm and body movements. The data is analyzed and processed on a computer in order to detect any disorder.

 

What are the uses Actigraphy?

Although polysomnography is the gold standard for studying sleep disorders, actigraphy can be very helpful in assessing the sleep patterns for extended durations without altering the patient’s daily routine.

It can be used to detect insomnia, restless leg syndrome and evaluating the effectiveness of sleep disorders’ treatment.

Actigraphy at NeuroMed

NeuroMed is a premium sleep medicine center and has earned an excellent reputation for the quality of the sleep studies performed by our experts.

TMS

TMS

TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION (TMS)

 

What is TMS?

  • It is a non-invasive procedure that uses magnetic fields with specific intensity and frequency to stimulate or inhibit activity of specific regions of the brain
  • TMS is generally well-tolerated and safe
  • During the session, a coil (which is the magnetic field generator) is placed over the region to be stimulated/inhibited while the patient is seated  normally and without any need for analgesia or sedation

             

What are the uses of TMS?

  • TMS is FDA- approved for use in the treatment of depression
  • It is also effective in post-stroke weakness and aphasia
  • Recent studies show that TMS is promising in insomnia

TMS at NeuroMed

  • NeuroMed has a team of experts who are capable of delivering TMS  sessions of the highest standard
  • Available at Heliopolis branch and New Cairo
