The EEG Tech non-registered (or telemetry monitoring technician) will monitor Long Term Monitoring (LTM)-EEG patient video and EEG recordings, to verify a safe environment for the patient, to recognize and note when patients have EEG events (seizures), and to maintain viable EEG recordings with properly operating EEG equipment and applied electrodes.
Michigan Medicine improves the health of patients, populations and communities through excellence in education, patient care, community service, research and technology development, and through leadership activities in Michigan, nationally and internationally. Our mission is guided by our Strategic Principles and has three critical components; patient care, education and research that together enhance our contribution to society.
-Monitor LTM patients on video screen to monitor for a safe environment, patient presence on the video screen, and to recognize and note any seizures and/or unusual EEG activity.
-Maintain proper EEG recordings and address / fix EEG recording problems including improperly functioning electrodes, and malfunctioning EEG recording machines.
-According to Epilepsy Laboratory seizure protocols, inform the EEG-Epi Fellow and / or the Pediatric Neurology Staff Physician who is in-patient attending for the date, to inform them of seizure frequency and type.
-Disconnect – d/c LTM studies when the pediatric neurology medical team so orders.
-Move LTM patients when asked by the in-patient unit to do so, including setting up and restarting EEG equipment.
-When duties, training, and time permits: set-up equipment and start LTM-EEG recordings on patients who have new orders for an LTM study, and…
-Fix, repair, re-apply specific EEG leads when EEG recording artifact warrants intervention.
-Repair or replace Kerlix head wrap (electrode covering) when needed.
- In collaboration with the EEG technicians, appropriately address any patient/parent questions and/or educational needs relevant to LTM monitoring
-Prepare EEG-Epi lab supplies for the next day shift.
- High school graduation with basic science course work or an equivalent combination of education and experience
- Basic knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the body
- Eligibility or certification by the American Board of Registration for Electroencephalographic Technologist
-Education, training, or experience in EEG and clinical electro-neurophysiology
-Some educational and/or work experience in a health care setting is highly
