At Encompass Medical Partners our focus is on creating a patient friendly environment. Our ambulatory EEG allows the patient to be monitored for up to 72 hours in their own home. The ambulatory video EEG test records both brainwaves and video at the same time. This allows the physician to see what is happening when the patient has a seizure or event and compare the picture to the EEG recording. Sounds that occur during the testing are also recorded so that the interpreting neurologist can tell if the seizure or event was related to the electrical activity in the brain.
