Electroneurodiagnostic technologists are trained professionals who specialize in studying and recording the electrical activity of the brain and nervous system. They use electroencephalograph (EEG) machines, evoked potential (EP), and other high-tech equipment to record measurements of the central nervous system. These technologists work one-on-one with patients in a healthcare setting, and often work in collaboration with other health professionals. They perform tasks such as obtaining and reviewing medical histories, attaching electrodes to a patient's scalp and body, observing and documenting a patient's clinical condition, and communicating with friends, family, and other healthcare personnel. They may also be called upon to assist neurologists in producing graphs that help detect and diagnose diseases such as epilepsy and Alzheimer's disease. Electroneurodiagnostic technologists must also be prepared to manage any emergency situation that may arise in the laboratory.
