Home video telemetry in children: A comparison to inpatient video telemetry


Epilepsy affects 36,000 children in the UK and is associated with a mortality rate twice that of the general population [1,2]. Making an accurate diagnosis can be difficult and up to 30% of children admitted acutely with paroxysmal events initially diagnosed as epileptic have their diagnosis overturned [3]. EEG has long been used to aid in the diagnosis of epilepsy but it relies heavily on ictal capture as a normal inter-ictal EEG does not refute a diagnosis of epilepsy and neither does an abnormal EEG fully confirm the diagnosis [4].
