The Brattleboro Memorial Hospital Respiratory Care Department announced it has established regular hours for electroencephalogram (EEG) testing and made an upgrade to its Pulmonary Function Testing (PFT) system.
BMH Respiratory Services Manager Laurie Kuralt, RN, BSN, CCRN, says a staff member recently received extensive training in performing EEG tests, enabling the hospital to offer regularly scheduled hours for EEG testing three days a week on an outpatient basis, as well as on weekends should the need arise. An EEG test measures electrical activity in the brain. It is used to diagnose epilepsy, study sleep disorders like narcolepsy, and check for mental health problems or problems with dementia, among other applications.

Hey Everyone! According to Vermont Edition’s website on VPR, Chris is going to be talking about ibrattleboro on Monday’s show. Be sure to listen!
is Brattleboro giving tax breaks to a group of millionaires who bought the
Brooks House and want to put in luxury apartments? What if the project fails? If the
project goes belly up, what is the financial guarantee to the town? Will the
town contiue to pay rent to Brooks house for the Harmony lot? Will the town
recoup the thousands of dollars it has already put into the Brooks house?
I encourage taxpayers
to write to the Selectboard and oppose the subsidie for millionaires.
