We sought to investigate electroencephalographers' real-world behaviors and opinions concerning reading routine EEG (rEEG) with or without clinical information. An eight-question, anonymous, online survey targeted at electroencephalographers was disseminated on social media from the authors' personal accounts and emailed to authors' select colleagues. A total of 389 responses were included. Most respondents reported examining clinical information before describing rEEG findings. Nonetheless, only a minority of respondents believe that EEG analysis/description should be influenced by clinical information. We recommend reviewing clinical data only after an unbiased EEG read to prevent history bias and ensure generation of reliable electrodiagnostic information.
