Before we talk about video EEG monitoring, we need to examine the EEG test in detail. EEG test is applied to measure electrical fluctuations in the brain. It is also possible to have information about brain functions with EEG. So what's the use of this test? Let's examine the details together.
What is Video EEG Monitoring?
The Video EEG Monitoring method is used when the EEG recording needs to be longer and more detailed. In this method, a recording is taken, sometimes for hours, sometimes for days, in order to monitor the patient’s reactions more clearly and to follow up on video.
Why Video EEG Monitoring?
During Video EEG Monitoring, certain complaints stated by the patient are addressed and investigations are carried out for these complaints. The realization of the examinations is possible by simultaneously recording the electrical activities from the video recording, in other words, documenting them. Thanks to this method, it is possible to classify epilepsy patients and to choose the most appropriate treatment method.
What is Possible with Video EEG Monitoring?
One of the advantages of the Video EEG Monitoring method is that it allows detailed examination in patients with attacks. It is incredibly important to determine which region of the brain the attack started in neurological diseases. With this method, it is possible to determine the starting point of the attack and even to allow the surgical removal of the defective area.
At the same time, we can say that it is possible to find the root of the diseases and the exact cause, as the patient is under investigation for long periods of time with the Video EEG Monitoring method. As a result of the simultaneous monitoring of the brain waves, the problem causing the patient’s existing complaint can be easily found. For example, it is possible to see clearly whether the complaint that causes brain waves is an epileptic result or a sleep behavior disorder. Thus, the disease is detected early and unnecessary treatment and wrong drug use are prevented.
