The Cayman Island Health Services Authority is pleased to announce the resumption of electroencephalogram (EEG) testing at the Cayman Islands Hospital.
Identifying a need for this service, the Billes family raised approximately $18,000 with the assistance of several community members for the purchase. The Neurovirtual EEG machine was received and installed on 10 January, 2017.eeg neurovirtual

Family member Deirdre Billes stated, “I would like to say thank you to those who contributed to this EEG donation back in November 2011, when I ran the Cayman Islands Marathon and raised $1575, under the name “Project Brainstorm”. Your contributions to my request to raise money helped to bring this project to fruition.”

The model purchased is a Neurovirtual BWII EEG, which is a 25 channel, portable, computer-based machine convenient for use in the outpatient clinic area as well as on the inpatient units throughout the hospital.

The machine will be used in the investigation of patients of all age groups, from newborns to elderly patients, with seizures, head injuries, brain tumors or in other instances where brain function needs to be assessed.
