An is a procedure in which brain waves are recorded
on a machine similar to an EKG, via electrodes that are
placed on the scalp. The test is not painful and takes
about an hour.
a graphic record of the contraction of a muscle as a result
of electrical stimulation. EMG's are performed at KMC by
neurologists and must be scheduled directly through physician
Evoked Potentials (VEP), Brainstem Evoked Potentials (BSEP)
and Somatosensory Evoked Potentials (SSEP) are procedures
that use light, sound and electrical stimuli to elicit various
nerve responses. Evoked potential testing takes from a half
hour to two hours, depending upon the type of test.
A 24-hour EEG records brain wave activity over a 24 hour
period of time by the use of a small recorder that does not
interfere with normal activities. A second visit is necessary
to remove the recorder 24 hours later.
Outpatients are required to bring a physician prescription
indicating the type of test and reason for the test along
with a physician referral, if needed.
