Baptist Health-Fort Smith offers both inpatient and outpatient epilepsy monitoring for patients and physicians wishing to identify the proper medication to treat a patient’s recurring seizures.

The Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU) is a specialized inpatient unit featuring state-of-the-art, computer-based monitoring equipment that allows our technicians and physician to evaluate, diagnose and treat seizures. It can also be used to document any paroxysmal or recurrent neurological spells, as well as detecting conversion disorders. 

During their stay, a patient is monitored for 24 hours a day for three to five days. Continuous video-EEG monitoring technology gathers data before the seizure starts, while one is occurring and during the brain’s recovery.

Neurological exams, blood tests and imaging tests such as an Electroencephalogram (EEG), Computerized tomography (CT) scan or Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) may be used to diagnose epilepsy.  Continuously monitoring a patient’s brain activity is also key to a diagnosis.

Who is a candidate for epilepsy monitoring?

  • Intermittent Confusion
  • Episodic Loss of Consciousness
  • Recurrent Syncope

An optional support person over the age of 18 is allowed to stay with the patient overnight, if needed. Outpatient monitoring may also be available for appropriate patients. In addition to epilepsy care provided in the clinic, Dr. Owais treats patients who suffer from dementia, Parkinson’s Disease, Muscular Dystrophy, headaches and strokes.
