Botox for Sialorrhea:
The Ambulatory EEG (AEEG) test is a powerful tool used to evaluate symptoms such as passing out, altered consciousness , confusion, episodic memory loss and seizures. During this test, small electrodes placed on your scalp will detect electrical activity from your brain. This information will be stored in a small computer that you will be able to carry around with you. The period of monitoring in which you will be wearing the electrodes is typically 2 to 3 days.
Prior to the Ambulatory EEG you should do the following:
You will be given a time and location to report for application of the electrodes. During this time the electrodes will be placed on your head and the recording of the brain activity will start. The electrodes used in this test are small metal disks placed on the scalp by the EEG technologist in a painless procedure, which will take approximately 1 hour. A paste will be used to stick the electrodes to your scalp. A gauze wrap is then used to keep the scalp electrodes in place and to keep the wires together and out of your way.
What should I do after the AEEG?
A return visit will be scheduled to allow us to remove the electrodes. You will be able to resume your regular activities after this appointment.
