Obstructive Sleep Apnea is fairly common, but very serious condition. When a person with this syndrome falls asleep, the airway collapses and disrupts normal breathing patterns. During this time, the person's oxygen saturation may fall below normal levels, which in turn sends a trigger to the brain to wake up. In order to wake the person up, a surge of adrenaline is rushed to the heart, causing it to speed up.
Medical conditions include:
Congestive Heart Failure

An EEG is used to evaluate several types of brain disorders. When epilepsy is present, seizure activity will appear as rapid spiking waves on the EEG.
The test can also be used to diagnose other disorders that influence brain activity, such as Alzheimer's disease, certain psychoses, and a sleep disorder called narcolepsy.
Indications for an EEG:
Memory Loss (Short or Long Term)
Migraine or Persistent Headaches
Evaluate Periods of Unconsciousness
