An electroencephalogram (EEG) measures electrical activity of the nerve cells in the brain by placing electrode sensors throughout the skull and TeleEEG can be used in either emergency or non-emergency situations. In the case of an emergency, the results of an EEG from the ER at a community hospital can be immediately sent to a Neurologist at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville to monitor things such as the effects of a medically induced coma, possible brain damage or a previously undiagnosed condition.

In non-emergency situations, an EEG can be conducted at one of the Geisinger community clinics and transported via TeleEEG to a neurologist to distinguish an epileptic seizure from other types of conditions such as fainting, migraines or changes in levels of consciousness.
