Local med center opens epilepsy monitoring unit
From a press release:
North Cypress Medical Center recently opened the North Cypress Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU). It is a first for the community and surrounding area with a dedicated unit that is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by specially trained nurses, and technical personnel. The unit serves both adult and pediatric patients of all ages.
The North Cypress EMU uses 24 hour state-of-the-art Electroencephalogram (EEG) monitoring equipment to help diagnose, evaluate, and treat those suffering from seizure disorders and those being evaluated for seizure surgery.
One of the great things about our EMU is the AirEEG Wireless System. It allows patients to be able to leave their room and move freely about the unit while continuing to be monitored by the nursing staff and technicians. In the past, patients had to remain in their rooms hooked up to monitoring equipment during stays that can last up to five days" explains Tina Heddens, EMU Clinical Coordinator.
The Epilepsy Monitoring Unit is located on the hospital's 6th floor under the direction of Dr. Balbir Singh, Board Certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology with added qualifications in Child Neurology and Clinical Neurophysiology. For more information call (832) 912-3873.
