EEG Examination Function In Infants 4 Months Who Can Not Stomach?
In the morning … my child is 4 months and a half. At this age my child has not been able to lay down for two days and then bring my child to the children’s hospital and dokterny told us to do an eeg test for our child, what is the function of this eeg test? Will there be any effects alongside our child, thank you
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. EEG, or electroencephalogram is a test used to find out the existence of problems that are associated with electrical activity in the brain.
Our bodies are actually electrified, it's just that in small amounts so we don't feel. Electricity plays a role in various things, such as moving, thinking, heart rate, and many others. If to find out the existence of problems in the heart we use the electricity using a heart recording device or ECG, if there are problems with our brain using EEG.
This examination is mainly carried out if there are suspected problems such as seizures, developmental delays, sleep disorders and other related to the brain. In the case of your child, because he is still unable to lie on his stomach at the age of 4 months, the doctor may suspect there is a problem in his brain so this examination is done to clarify.
This examination is quite convenient, and your child will not feel disturbed or in pain. The examination can take up to an hour, and you can wait in the room with him. If there is anything else you want to confirm regarding your child's clinical condition, it would be better if you ask directly to the doctor who treated him. So, hopefully answering your question.
