Your Source for Ambulatory EEG with Video

Long-term video-EEG monitoring has become a mainstay of modern neurological diagnosis and treatment. It has proven critical for differentiating epilepsy from psychogenic events, sleep disorders and other mimickers of seizures. In addition, video-EEG monitoring can characterize the frequency and type of epileptic seizure, as well as localize the area of the brain from which ictal events originate.

Unfortunately, in-hospital monitoring over several days is often not possible for a variety of reasons. Ambulatory EEG systems offer a cost effective alternative. Patients have electrodes applied to their head as an outpatient and go home with a miniature amplifier and recorder on a belt pack. One-to-three days later the patient returns to be disconnected and the data is downloaded to a computerized reading station where it may be interpreted by a neurologist.

Monarch's Video EEG Process

  • Physician refers a patient for a video EEG study by faxing a signed referral form to Monarch
  • Monarch performs insurance pre-certification prior to patient scheduling
  • Patient is set up by an experienced EEG technologist. This set up can occur either in the patient's home or referring physician's office
  • EEG and video data are continuously recorded to allow for the capture of patient activity. The patient is provided with a 24 hour support line number.
  • Up to 72 hours later, the EEG technologist returns to disconnect the equipment, download the EEG data, and verify the quality of the recording.
  • Referring (or reading) physician conducts an interpretation of the results.
