Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU)
The adult epilepsy monitoring unit (EMU) offers six private rooms in Pavilion H (7th floor West wing). The pediatric EMU offers three private pediatric rooms in pavilion H (3rd floor North wing).
The EMU offers prolonged combined data from the EEG and concomitant video. This data helps the neurologist determine what type of seizures the patient is experiencing, which helps tailor treatment.
This data also provides information about where seizures originate in the brain. This is a key step to evaluate if patients are candidates for epilepsy surgery.
