I know every hospital would be different especially with every country. But with the hospital I go to for my epilepsy I wasn't aloud any sheets or blankets etc during veeg or anything to cover me as they wanted to catch all seizure activity and felt anything over you could hide any seizure activity. Each monitoring room had their own heating / cooling which we could get set at own temp.For those who have had VEEG's before, did they allow you blankets during the night? My body temperature drops a lot during the night, and being cold is pretty much the only thing that will stop me sleeping. I'm so worried about being cold and shivering, perhaps affecting the eeg!
I had my 2nd veeg in July which was middle of Aussie winter so I had winter pjs on and wore winter dressing gown at night so wasn’t too bad.
I took my laptop and phone with me for my 2nd veeg but couldn't use them plugged in as it affected the machinery. So I would use them off the chargers then when they needed charging I would put them on the charger which was close enough to where I could get to from my chair. I also took some puzzle books.
Good luck , great news they got you in sooner.
