EEG Instructions

In order to obtain the best possible results from the testing, please follow the guidelines below:

DO'S

  1. Wash hair the night before the test.
  2. Bring a complete list of all medications you take at home.
  3. Stay up late the night before the test and get up early. No more than 5 hours of sleep. You need to be drowsy for the test.
  4. Take your medications before coming to your EEG test.

DON'TS

  1. DON'T USE hair sprays, oils or cream rinse on your hair.
  2. DON'T drink or eat anything with caffeine (i.e. tea, soda, coffee, chocolate) 24 hours prior to the test.

We will be using a special gel for your hair during the test. This gel helps us get a better EEG tracing. This gel can be brushed out after the test. You may want to go home to shampoo afterwards. Please plan accordingly.

EMG Instructions

Please do not use any lotions, creams or powders on your skin prior to the test.
