Epilepsy Monitoring Unit

The Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (UME) has four beds for prolonged video-EEG recordings and is equipped with the latest stereo-electroencephalography (SEEG) acquisition systems with recording capacity of up to 256 channels. The structure consists of a monitoring room where nurses and technicians meet for 24 hours a day with exclusive dedication to the EMU. There is also a specific guard of epilepsy so in case of emergencies a specialized professional is always available. This means that the EMU of the Hospital del Mar meets the highest standard of international security by having continuous observation and specialists on duty throughout the stay, even on weekends. Stays can vary in duration of 2 or 3 days in cases of children up to 2 or 3 weeks in case of patients implanted with electrodes.

The registration rooms are equipped with infrared cameras for patient observation and seizure evaluation as well as screens for EEG recording. Patient beds are designed to avoid injuries, and cardiorespiratory monitoring systems are available that allow rapid control of possible alterations that may appear during seizures.
