OUR TEAM

Nationally Certified Video-EEG Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU)​

Hawaii Pacific Neuroscience Video-EEG Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU) offers both EEG (electroencephalography) equipment to monitor brain activity and video cameras to record body movements during a seizure. Video-EEG monitoring is a way of simultaneously recording the brain wave activity (EEG) and the patient’s behavior.

This combined approach gives us a much greater understanding of seizures than would using either technique alone. The monitoring allows us not only to diagnose a seizure problem accurately, but also to design the best possible treatment plan. Patients are monitored in the unit throughout the day and night. Patients may stay in the video-EEG monitoring unit for 4 days for recording the electrical impulses (EEG) causing seizures.

Our registered and highly skilled and trained technicians closely monitor our patients and these activity round the clock. Our epilepsy experts are well versed in diverse areas of diagnosis and treatment of seizures and epilepsy, including EEG monitoring, presurgical workup and using new and innovative research medications. Hawaii Pacific Neuroscience is a leading establishment in worldwide epilepsy research. We specialize in helping people with difficult to treat seizures and with unclear diagnosis.

Our physicians believe that treating epilepsy does not end with starting antiseizure medications but ends only with the overall well being of people with epilepsy, including their psychological and social well-being. More information Call the Video-EEG EMU at (808) 564-6147.

 

Our EEG laboratory is the first epilepsy center in Hawaii recognized and accredited by Neurodiagnostic Credentialing and Accreditation of ABRET (American Board of Registration of Electroencephalographic and Evoked Potential Technologists), the accreditation organization for EEG labs in US based in Springfield, IL, USA

The Laboratory Accreditation Board of ABRET is an accreditation program for laboratories meeting technical standards and demonstrating quality output. The evaluation will focus on the technical component of the recordings and lab management issues.

Our EEG & Neurophysiology laboratory and facilities is also the only EEG facility in Hawaii accredited and nationally certified by Cliniclabs Drug Development in New York so it adheres to the high standards needed in performing EEG during clinical research conducted for these data to be submitted to FDA.
