Dr. Eugene Ramsay discusses the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit at Ochsner Baptist Medical Center. Epilepsy occurs when normal signaling in the brain is not functioning correctly; when that occurs a person can experience a seizure. The Epilepsy Institute at Ochsner Baptist Medical Center set up the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit. This inpatient unit can record brain activity and patient behavior to determine if they have epilepsy or another condition. This can greatly benefit patients as it allows for clearer diagnosis and therefore can lead to the proper and correct treatment.
