As an eeg tech it's going to just like the one at the hospital just keep in mind;
Wear a button down shirt or one that you want to wear for the duration of the test
You can't shower
You will carry around the box hooked up to the wires
You may have a camera that may require to be plugged in or have its batteries changed
Please document anything strange you feel event if you have an event button, document medications times, bedtime, awake time, events
If you have a camera you don't have to have it on you during private times just when chilling or sleeping.
Any problems just call your techs

Just finished mine today. Try to keep your routine as normal and active as your real life. I had a lot of meal dates with friends for support. 2 helpful hints: 1) you can buy 3 pack head scarf off Amazon to cover the wires and look stylish 2) oil your hair down and brush to get the extra sensor glue off pain free when you are done (and your hair will be super soft). It’s gonna be weird but totally tolerable

I have had an ambulatory eeg. It's a little aggravating if you have to drive somewhere! Mine got tangled easily though but it is best to carry on normal activities as much as possible. I did mine for a week and it wasn't too bad I wish all the best luck to you!
