Epilepsy is a disorder of the brain that can cause temporary confusion, staring spells, uncontrollable jerking motions of the arms and legs, and unconsciousness. If you or a loved one is suffering from epilepsy or seizures, our new Epilepsy Program is
designed to help you regain control of your life.
In addition to offering diagnostics and electroencephalograms (EEGs), we are the first in Palm Beach County to have a dedicated Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU) for patients in need of further assessment. The unit employs skilled technologists and a core
nursing staff committed to providing the best possible inpatient monitoring experience.
Our EMU is equipped with Long-Term Video Monitoring, a specialized form of an EEG in which the patient is continuously monitored on video while brainwave activity is recorded. It allows physicians to:
Identify the onset triggers for seizures
Differentiate epileptic events from psychogenic seizures
Establish the specific type of epilepsy
The video captured with this testing can be used to detect epileptic activity not detectable in routine EEGs and can be critical for the diagnosis of epilepsy.
