Heart Rate Changes in Subjects with Epilepsy During an Epilepsy Monitoring Unit Admission

Purpose

The goal of this study is to collect continous observational video, EEG, EOG, and ECG data during ictal and non-ictal events occuring during a clinical Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU) evaluation. This is in order to characterize cardiac response (ECG) to physiologic events and compare it to changes in heart rate that precede an epileptic seizure.
