MyCare

We are introducing, MyCare, an enhanced information system to help you better manage your health and wellness. It provides an up-to-date medical history and has many more features.

Why Everyone Needs a Primary Care Physician

Physicians in the Department of Neurology diagnose and treat disorders of the central and peripheral nervous systems, which include the brain, spinal cord, and outlying nerves in the body. Patients who suffer from severe headaches, back and neck problems, seizures, and brain disorders may seek the assistance of a neurologist. Neurologists also diagnose and treat muscle diseases and diagnose or rule out conditions such as epilepsy, cerebral palsy, brain tumors, brain injuries, or stroke.

 

In Home Ambulatory Video EEG 

What is it?

A state-of-the-art digital In Home Ambulatory Video EEG test records your brainwaves on an EEG and a video of what is going on at the same time. The quality of this study is comparable of what can be achieved in the hospital. The purpose is to be able to see what is happening when you have a seizure or event and compare the picture to what the EEG records at the same time. Sounds that occur during the testing are also recorded - this can pick up if a person talks or makes sounds during an event. By doing this, doctors reading the EEG can tell if the seizure or event was related to the electrical activity in the brain. If so, we'd call this an epilepsy seizure.

Where are In Home Ambulatory Video EEG Tests Done?

Video EEG tests can be done at home making them convenient, non-invasive and comfortable. This testing may help record a person's activity and seizures during their routine daily activities and during sleep. Testing can take anywhere from 24-72 hours depending on the patient.

Advantages of In Home Ambulatory Video EEG Tests:

-Regular environment and stress where episodes spontaneously occur
-Home comfort and no need to travel
-Lower cost compared to inpatient EEG video monitoring
-Expanded length of test 24, 48 and 72 hours allows greater opportunity to capture those events that happen intermittently and only under certain circumstances.

Call the Department of Neurology at 217.366.1266 to schedule an In Home Ambulatory Video EEG for your patient.
