Technical tips: Electrode application and preventing skin breakdown techniques.


PMID 21988039

Abstract

The recording electrodes including their precise location, their ability to record during movements that can be intense during a convulsive seizure, and their capability to record for several days without causing skin breakdown are an integral part of long-term EEG recording. Many of the facets of EEG technology have changed dramatically with the introduction of digital EEG. But the electrode and the electrode/skin interface have not had many dramatic changes. The technologist still looks for ways to ensure correct electrode placement, good recording capabilities, and a patient with healthy skin when the electrodes are removed. This Technical Tips features ideas and experiences from several technologists. These technologists express suggestions and opinions which are accepted in Technical Tips.
