Long-Term Video EEG Monitoring
In the NICU, 12 beds are equipped for long-term video EEG monitoring, which is used to evaluate a baby’s brain activity and behavioral activity for an extended period of time. This long-term monitoring is crucial for detecting newborn seizures that are not always physically apparent. Patients are monitored around the clock by registered EEG technologists, and neurologists are always available for consultation when questions arise about an infant’s behavior and physical signs. Our neurologists can also remotely access the video and EEG monitoring equipment to assist in treatment planning.
Based on the results of the studies and work-ups, our pediatric epileptologists can detect seizures in an asymptomatic infant and work with the neonatal team to develop individualized treatment recommendations. Learn more about our Comprehensive Epilepsy Program.
