Epilepsy Monitoring Unit at Crozer-Chester Medical Center

The Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU) at Crozer-Chester Medical Center features the latest technology to monitor and diagnose men and women with suspected epilepsy. Designed for patients who suffer from seizures and who may be difficult to diagnose, the EMU is staffed by physicians, nurses and technicians who are experts in epilepsy and dedicated to the personal care and comfort of each patient.

How It Works

Patients typically stay in the EMU for several days while receiving continuous video electroencephalography (EEG) monitoring, which records the electrical impulses from the brain that can cause seizures.

The monitoring helps neurologists learn more about the type and frequency of seizures patients have to help determine the best treatment plans. And because patients are monitored in an inpatient setting, they receive timely access to both routine and critical medical services. Physicians are able to continuously check the status of patients. By logging into a secure server, physicians can monitor patients and make decisions about their patients even from home.

Crozer-Keystone neurologists are committed to keeping family members and referring physicians up-to-date about patients’ progress.
