An Electroneurodiagnostic (EEG) Technician uses specialized equipment to record and study a patient's brain waves and other electrical impulses of the nervous system. EEG Technicians work with physicians to help diagnose neurological and sleep disorders, such as insomnia, epilepsy, brain tumors and brain death. EEG Technicians are trained in the use of the electroencephalograph, the diagnostic instrument used for EEG procedures, and are responsible for the placement of electrodes on a patient's body before an EEG begins. EEG Technicians also must take a patient's medical history, explain the EEG procedure and calm patients throughout the procedure.
Electromyography, or EMG, involves testing the electrical activity of muscles. Often, EMG testing is performed with another test that measures the conducting function of nerves. This is called a nerve conduction study. Because both tests are often performed at the same office visit and by the same personnel, the risks and procedures generally apply to both tests.Muscular movement involves the action of muscles and nerves and needs an electrical current. This electrical current is much weaker than the one in your household wiring.In some medical conditions the electrical activity of the muscles or nerves is not normal. Finding and describing these electrical properties in the muscle or nerve may help your doctor diagnose your condition.
