aEEG Storage


Recommended Posts

Hi 99ers,

Following completion of aEEG tracing how are you storing the information. We used to physically download onto disc, but with onset of flash drives wondered how it was now being stored given it’s potentially Medico legal ramifications. TIA. Please keep safe.

Kind regards

Hi @ali, I must admit I am not sure about how we do this... but I think it goes about like this. Registrations are first stored on the hard drive of our aEEG machine, and the electrophys depart then "tanks" them over somehow to interpret our tracings. I suppose the electrophys dept keep the aEEG tracings with all their other tracings (EEGs, EMGs etc-etc),i.e. so it complies to legal frameworks.

We also used to store onto discs…. For now we try to write a report in the medical chart for every aEEG assessed (sometimes difficult when longtime monitoring is used during nights and weekends, but I think this is important from the medical-legal aspect (and most recently we are also able to add a screenshot of the trace) and then additionaly store the aEEG trace on a secure (only accessable for medical staff and by password) server for longterm storage.
