I could easily produce a seizure for an eeg. I know what my triggers are. Timing might be a bit tricky. Should I do this?

In brief: All must be involved

We frequently try to catch a seizure on eeg.
That is why the patient breaths deeply and lights are flashed and sleep is attempted. If there are specific triggers, the eeg technician and you can prepare and catch a good event on eeg in a quality manner. We recently caught a good event with a young lady who had seizures when using a hair dryer during the eeg.
