Prepare for Your Overnight Video EEG

To prepare for your overnight video EEG, you or your child, if applicable, should not engage in activities during which it would be impossible to tell if a spell is occurring. For example, if the spell of concern is a staring spell, then you should not watch television, as it would be impossible to tell if a staring spell is occurring. Rather, you should do other activities so that you can tell if a staring spell occurs.

When it is time for you to go to sleep, you may change in the suite bathroom. You will be monitored overnight, and upon awakening. The facility in which you will stay the night is outfitted much like a hotel room. There will be a comfortable bed.

A light supper and snacks will be provided. If you require a special diet, you may want to bring your own food.

In the morning, the electrodes will be removed and the paste washed out. Each suite is furnished with a shower and shampoo/conditioning products.

Before You Arrive:
Please wash your hair with only shampoo (avoid creams, styling products, or oils) the night before or morning of the admission.

Please Remember to Bring:

  • Pajamas
  • Toiletries (toothbrush, hairbrush, etc.)
  • Special dietary food or items (microwave and refrigerator are available)
  • Change of clothes for next day
  • Favorite pillow/blanket/stuffed animal (or other comforts)
  • Medications normally taken in am and pm
  • Tablet, games, books (or other activities)

Medications
Any medications that you need will need to be brought and administered by yourself.
