The Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU) at Littleton Adventist Hospital is designed for patients 17 and older who need prolonged inpatient video electroencephalogram (EEG) monitoring. The EMU provides the medical team the ability to safely provoke seizure activity by removing anti-epileptic drugs in a controlled environment. The EMU is physically located within the ICU, so patients are closely monitored by nursing staff and have immediate access to acute care when seizures do occur. In as many as 88% of cases, a definitive diagnosis is achieved. Treatment is influenced in as many as 80% of these cases.
The Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU) is part of the Brain and Spine Center at Littleton Adventist Hospital. Our team of neurologist, epileptologists, and neurosurgeons offers patients extensive experience and a broad range of treatment options in the complex areas of interventional neurology, neuro-oncology, neurotrauma, functional neurology, and more.
If you think you could benefit from our EMU service, please contact your neurologist, epileptologist or primary care physician. You will need a referral from one of these providers for admission.
