We must take the message in this report seriously in terms of realizing how wide the potential effects of CV19 can be and how we must keep making sure we are evaluating all of our functions especially that of our central nervous system. I'm taking from the study that's being discussed in this news report that neurological injury can take place within the sphere of someone being infected with COVID 19 and not show many other symptoms or that they will surface after someone has 'recovered'. Quietmind is going to be setting up a testing program for brain health at its offices in Elkins Park for everyone to get an evaluation using Quantitative EEG assessment technology (QEEG) or brainmapping. The QEEG is a completely noninvasive process of measuring the electricity coming from the brain to the scalp surface is done with a headset of small sensors that contain sponges soaked in saline. The sensors read the electrical activity at 19 locations on the skull and compare those readings against norms for age, gender and handedness. This can identify if someone is producing too much or too little activity in certain brain regions that could imply inflammation in that area or a restriction of blood flow and oxygen that is compromising optimal functioning.
Brainmapping is covered by Medicare and some other insurance carriers but this will require being evaluated by our Medical Director Dr. James Halper, MD who is sertified in neuropsychiatry, immunology and internal medicine. These consultations will be done through telehealth video connection. The QEEG will be provided by one of the Quietmind staff who have 20+ years experience and have been certified in EEG biofeedback and Quantitative EEG.
