13.  How Do Reusable EEG Electrodes Compare To Disposable EEG Electrodes?

Reusable EEG electrodes compare to disposable EEG electrodes in the following ways:

Disposable EEG Electrodes

They are widely used because they can be easily and quickly applied.

They tend to be connected by being snapped onto a lead wire or cable which is then connected to a recording machine.

They are relatively affordable varieties and are usually shaped like a flexible disk that is gluey. They have a central snap manufactured from silver chloride and some of them have semiliquid gel around the snap area for efficient conduction of impulses to the machine leads.

disposable EEG Electrodes

Their major downside is that they are very large, and this might reduce their ability to stick within regions that have a lot of hair.

Some disposable EEG electrodes tend to use salt water or saline instead of gel and they tend to be fixed using clipping or snapping to a cap or headband.

Reusable EEG Electrodes

Reusable EEG electrodes are not as large as disposable EEG electrodes thus this gives them the advantage of being able to be placed closer to the skin in areas with a lot of hair.

The discs or reusable EEG electrodes may be manufactured using gold, tin, and silver as they are all conduct data easily.

They can be used with either headbands or caps and they require careful cleaning after every use. Reusable EEG electrodes tend to be more costly as compared to disposable electrodes although the cost tends to even out over a given period.

  • Ascertain the function that you would like reusable EEG electrodes which you need to be able to select the right product.
  • Consider the size of the reusable EEG electrodes that you need as they are available in varying sizes.

17.  How Long Do Reusable EEG Electrodes Last?

Reusable EEG electrodes tend to last between 1 to 3 years although some clients use them even up to 8 years.

It is important to note that there are factors that may contribute to reducing the lifetime of reusable EEG electrodes such as:

  • Use of hot and alkaline samples
  • Storage of the reusable EEG electrodes in unwanted conditions
  • Overpressure of the electrolyte
  • Attack of the reusable EEG electrodes by chemicals

18.  How Does Temperature Affect The PH Value Of The Sample When Using Reusable EEG Electrodes?

The pH value of a given sample tends to vary with temperature changes. It tends to be a chemical effect and is individually dependent on each sample type.

It is not possible to compensate for this influence as only the real value of pH and actual temperature are shown.

Therefore, it is only recommended to compare values of pH which are determined at the same temperature.

19.  What Are The Ways Of Compensating Temperature When Measuring The Conductivity Of Reusable EEG Electrodes?

Measuring conductivity tends to depend strongly on the temperature and tends to have about 2% variation per degree Celsius.

The results are only compared when the temperature of all samples is the same or if the value refers to a given reference temperature.

The most often method used is linear compensation and the operator has to choose either 20 degrees Celsius or 25 degrees Celsius as the temperature of reference.

The difference which is obtained between the reference temperature and the measured temperature is then multiplied using a compensation factor which is referred to as alpha or unit%/degrees Celsius.

The reading of the conductivity is then measured using the percentage found above.

It is important o determine the right temperature compensation and the linear compensation coefficient alpha for each sample when measuring the conductivity.

Using approximation, the dependence of temperature is taken using linear. For standard samples, the factor setting used is alpha is 2.00 degrees Celsius.

20.  How Long Should Solutions Used In Reusable EEG Electrodes Be Used Once The Bottle Has Been Opened?

Manufacturers tend to guarantee that solutions used in reusable EEG electrodes which have been opened will meet their specifications so long as it is stored in the right conditions.

They only offer tips on how to store the bottles to ensure that it remains very fresh and fit for use to give accurate results.

21.  Are Reusable EEG Electrodes Hypoallergenic?

Yes, reusable EEG electrodes are hypoallergic.

22.  Can Reusable EEG Electrodes Be Used In MRI Procedures?

There are no studies that support the use of reusable EEG electrodes in MRI procedures.

23.  Why Does 3M Reusable EEG Electrodes Not Produce Electrodes With An Offset Stud?

Some of the reasons why 3M reusable EEG electrodes do not produce electrodes with an offset stud include:

  • The offset stud was originally made in a way that prevents the wet gel element of the conduction element of the reusable EEG electrodes from being pressed under the skin adhesive when the press stud is attached.
  • This tended to result in increased artifacts and poor skin adhesion.
  • Later, it was found to be advantageous when the connector was a stud, the reusable EEG electrode was being positioned over a bony area, leading to a little discomfort.
  • However, the area which was hinged to the offset stud produces electrical noise if flexed and this could result in interference of the right recording.
  • In addition, the connector preferred is no longer a press stud but a squeeze clip.

This is because it tends to securely connect without imposing any downward pressure onto the patient.

This negates the marginal benefit and price of an offset tab connector.
