An epilepsy monitoring unit (EMU) is an inpatient unit run by specialists in epilepsy. These centers provide in-depth diagnostic and treatment services for people with difficult to diagnose or treat seizures or epilepsy. EMUs are typically part of a specialized epilepsy center that provides both outpatient.

Therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) means using blood levels to individualise epilepsy treatment to get the best seizure control with the least side effects for each person. Measuring the amount of drug in the blood is a way of looking at the link between drug concentration and its effect on seizures (whether it stops seizures or causes side.

Video electroencephalogram (EEG) monitoring is the gold standard diagnostic test that can make a clear distinction between psychogenic nonepileptic seizures and epilepsy.

The Long-Term Monitoring Unit is a specialized section of a hospital or clinic for diagnosing persons with seizures or poorly understood episodes of altered consciousness. The Unit is staffed by an attending neurologist who has had specific training in the diagnosis and management of epilepsy and seizures, registered nurses, and EEG technologists.

Our program provides advanced testing, both for the diagnosis of epilepsy and evaluation for surgery. Our Long-Term Video EEG Monitoring Unit provides a safe, controlled environment for evaluating patients' seizures.

Seizure Monitoring. Few studies have reported EEG changes before and during KD treatment. In one recent study of 18 children, interictal and ictal epileptiform activity was quantified prior to the initiation of the KD and after 3 months on the diet using long‐term video EEG monitoring (Hallbook et al., ).Cited by: Get facts about the long-term outlook for epilepsy.

Alving et al () noted that inpatient long-term video-EEG monitoring (LTM) is an important diagnostic tool for patients with seizures and other paroxysmal behavioral events. Continuous video EEG monitoring is the most informative test for establishing the diagnosis of epilepsy and differentiating it from other forms of seizure activity.
