What is video telemetry?

Video Telemetry: A camera continuously records your child, allowing us to compare what physically occurs during a seizure with what is recorded by the EEG. This helps us accurately classify the seizure type.

What is telemetry NHS?

Telemetry is a test that looks at the function of the brain. The brain works by a series of nerve impulses, which cause electrical signals. These signals (also called brainwaves) can be recorded through the scalp.

What is a 72 hour EEG?

An Ambulatory EEG (Amb EEG) is a safe, painless test which will record the electrical activity produced by your brain. An Amb EEG uses a digital recording system to record brain activity for 24-72 hours while you go about your daily routine.

What does a video EEG show?

A video EEG (electroencephalograph) records what you are doing or experiencing on video tape while an EEG test records your brainwaves. The purpose is to be able to see what is happening when you have a seizure or event and compare the picture to what the EEG records at the same time.

Can an EEG show past seizure activity?

The likelihood of recording a seizure during a routine EEG is small. The EEG generally records brain waves between seizures, called interictal brain waves. These waves may or may not show evidence of seizure activity.

What is a telemetry test?

Telemetry monitoring is when healthcare providers monitor the electrical activity of your heart for an extended time. Electrical signals control your heartbeat. The recordings taken during telemetry monitoring show healthcare providers if there are problems with how your heart beats.

How long does a prolonged EEG take?

Prolonged EEG: A prolonged EEG test usually takes one hour and 15 minutes, but some types can last several days. A prolonged EEG gives your healthcare provider more information than a routine EEG. Your provider may use a prolonged EEG test to diagnose or manage seizures disorders. Prolonged EEGs use video.

How is a video EEG performed?

During video-EEG monitoring, the patient wears an EEG transmitter connected to a wall outlet by coaxial cable. Wall-mounted video cameras provide continuous behavioral observation. Both EEG and video signals are transmitted to a control room, where the EEG is reformatted and conducted to a video monitor.
