What are EEG and EMG tests?
It is the electrical activity produced by the nerve cells in the brain, both wakefulness and sleep, to be printed on paper as brainwaves.
In which cases EEG shooting is required?
The normal electrical activity of the brain is disrupted in many cases, particularly epilepsy (epilepsy). Evaluation of brain waves forming the EEG and the location and shape of this disorder are obtained. In the investigation of the causes of headaches and the evaluation of brain functions in many neurological diseases other than epilepsy, an EEG examination is used. In particular, the investigation of the causes of fainting, the diagnosis of epilepsy disease and the determination of the type of treatment will determine the method of examination EEG.
How to Make EEG Shots?
The electrical activity of the brain is transmitted to the EEG device via small metal electrodes placed on the scalp of the patient and the data is recorded to the computer for an average of 20 minutes.
The patient is not supplied with electricity during the shooting and the patient does not experience any pain.
EEG can be taken in all age groups and pregnant women. Does not contain radiation.
Sleep helps in the development of abnormal electrical activity in the brain. In the event that the EEG performed for 20 minutes in case of wakefulness for a diagnosis of epilepsy does not provide sufficient information, EEG is performed during sleep. Sleep EEG is one of the most commonly used methods of activation.
The patient's sleeplessness in the night before this kind of attraction is beneficial because it will facilitate daytime sleep and increase the likelihood of abnormal brain waves.
Coming to Shooting
It is useful to wash the hair on the morning of the shooting day in order to ensure that the EEG examination is free of interference.
If there are drugs used continuously, drugs will continue to be used on the day of shooting, and it will be appropriate to inform the physician about the EEG.
Electrical and electrical monitoring of the nerves and muscles in our body. In the EMG examination, the head, arms, legs and peripheral nerves on the body function normally.
What is the EMG?
Nerve jams (Carpal tunnel syndrome, etc.)
Waist and neck hernia
Tables of numbness and burning in the arms and legs
Diagnosis of diseases that impair the function of nerves (metabolic diseases such as diabetes)
Diagnosis of muscle diseases
It is performed for the diagnosis of spinal cord diseases with muscle melting.
How to make an EMG study?
Examination of the nerves: Some nerves selected in the arms, legs, or other parts of the body are stimulated by a linear electrical current that will not disturb the patient through an electrode placed on the skin.
Examination of the muscles: A needle-shaped electrode is placed in a selected muscle in the arm, leg or other body parts to examine the electrical activity in the muscle.
EMG Shooting Time
EMG examination is a review that can last between 15 minutes and 1 hour, although the duration may vary. The EMG does not have a known side effect and no known lasting harm, except for mild stimulation during electrical stimulation and injection.
EMG on Arrival
The patient does not need to be hungry,
If there are medicines that are regularly used, there is no harm in taking them.
Wearing comfortable clothing makes inspection easier.
If the patient has a pacemaker, it is recommended that the patient or patient's relative should alert the physician before the examination.
