The Rush EEG laboratory is one of the largest and busiest in the region. It includes an outpatient department and a state-of-the-art eight bed inpatient monitoring unit. The inpatient unit monitors simultaneous EEG and video recordings, 24 hours per day. It also provides 24-hour inpatient EEG/video monitoring of patients in Rush's Neurological Intensive Care and Pediatric Intensive Care units. The lab also is a specialized training center for EEG technicians and neurologists.
Rush physicians who supervise and interpret recordings from the lab have received special post-graduate training and are board certified or board eligible in electroencephalography and evoked potentials. Most of our technicians are certified by the American Board of Registration of Electroencephalographic and Evoked Potential Technologists, with many years of experience. The lab is accredited by the same board, having met rigorous technical, personnel and safety standards.
