Benefits of Continuous Video EEG Monitoring

Continuous Video EEG Monitoring:

  • Enables a definitive diagnosis through the delivery of Video EEG data acquired during the study period
  • Combines EEG, Video and 24-hour monitoring to deliver real-time data to detect events and ongoing seizure activity
  • Provides accurate clinical data to make a definitive diagnosis and avoid unnecessary treatment and medication
  • Assures 24/7 real-time, eyes-on monitoring
  • Increases capabilities and capacity for EMUs and ICUs to improve patient quality of care
  • Supports diagnosis of convulsive and non-convulsive seizure and event classification and is considered the Gold Standard.
    • ACNS consensus panel recommends cEEG monitoring for all diagnosis of nonconvulsive seizures, nonconvulsive status epilepticus and other paroxysmal events. Journal of Clinical Neurophysiology April 2015
    • 44% of pediatric ICU patients have seizures on cEEG, 39% were non-convulsive. Hirsch et al. 2006
    • Frequency of electrographic seizures in ICU patients with acute neurological conditions has been reported as between 19%-50%. Arch Neurol 2004 ;61:1090-1094
