Excellence in Stroke Care
Our Stroke Care program has been honored by the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association with the Get with the Guidelines Stroke Silver Quality Achievement Award. This award recognizes our commitment and success in implementing a high standard of stroke care by ensuring that our stroke patients receive treatment that meets nationally-accepted, evidence-based standards and recommendations.
Our Electroencephalogram (EEG) lab serves adults and pediatric patients on both an inpatient and outpatient basis by performing the following diagnostic tests:
- Electroencephalogram (EEG) – This test uses special sensors called electrodes to measure and record the electrical activity in a patient’s brain. EEGs are performed to evaluate the seizures a patient is experiencing so that an effective treatment plan can be developed and to check for problems associated with loss of consciousness, memory loss, tremors or dizziness.
- Video EEG Monitoring Test – This is a specialized form of an EEG test that requires a hospital stay so the patient’s brain activity can be continuously monitored on a video screen. This enables doctors to observe and evaluate a patient’s brainwave activity that is occurring at the precise moment they are experiencing a seizure, fainting spell or other medical event.
