Epilepsy Monitoring - Crozer-Keystone Health System - PA

Epilepsy Monitoring

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

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.
