A Look at Sinai Hospital’s Epilepsy Monitoring Unit
Posted Jan 30 2013 9:00am
The Sandra and Malcolm Berman Brain & Spine Institute features an inpatient Epilepsy Monitoring Unit at Sinai Hospital that allows doctors to observe and record the brain waves of patients experiencing seizures or seizure-like behaviors in a comfortable, relaxed setting. Patients stay in a private room equipped with minimally intrusive medical and video monitoring equipment. By observing the patient’s episodes and pinpointing the source of the seizures, doctors can find better ways to treat these patients.
