Apr 06, · Objective- Look at diagnostic yield of long term video EEG monitoring (vEEG). Background: vEEG is a standard of practice in epilepsy centers for characterization of paroxysmal spells and surgical work up in cases of intractable epilepsy. Cost of a single study is about $35, 40, Method: This is a retrospective chart review of the last patients admitted to our Epilepsy Monitoring Unit Cited by: 3. Ambulatory cassette-recorded EEGs offer the ability to record the EEG on a long-term, outpatient basis. Recorded electrical activity is analyzed by playback through an audio system and/or video monitors. Guidelines EEG monitoring may facilitate the differential diagnosis between seizures and syncopal attacks, sleep apnea, cardiac.
Long-term EEG recordings may be performed as an outpatient or in an epilepsy monitoring unit. Potential techniques for video-EEG monitoring include prolonged conventional routine EEG, ambulatory EEG, and computer-assisted EEG recordings. Periictal SPECT studies performed during long-term EEG recordings in the epilepsy monitoring unit may increase the diagnostic Cited by:
