National Neurodiagnostic Week: Bringing to Light What’s Hidden from Sight

National Neurodiagnostic Week: Bringing to Light What’s Hidden from Sight

During National Neurodiagnostic Week—April 18-24, 2021—Campbell County Health Respiratory Therapy and Sleep Center acknowledges the year-round effort and commitment to perform the highest level of patient care delivered by a certified neurodiagnostic technologist. The week also serves as an opportunity to promote neurodiagnostic awareness in the community.

For those who don’t know, neurodiagnostics is the study of the brain and nervous system. There is one neurodiagnostic technologist at CCH, Jody Christopherson, who is a Registered Electroencephalographic (EEG) Technologist through the American Board of Registration of Electroencephalographic and Evoked Potential Technicians (ABRET).

She performs electroencephalography (EEG) tests for patients in an inpatient (hospital) and outpatient (clinical) setting. EEG technologists play an important role in performing these various tests to aid in diagnosing such illnesses and problems as:

  • brain injuries
  • dizziness
  • epilepsy and other seizure disorders
  • migraine headaches
  • sleep problems
  • strokes

An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test used to find problems related to electrical activity of the brain. An EEG tracks and records brain wave patterns. Small metal discs with thin wires (electrodes) are placed on the scalp, and then send signals to a computer to record the results.

If you have any neurodiagnostic questions, please call 307-688-2300 or visit www.cchwyo.org/rt.
