Outcome of ambulatory video-EEG monitoring in a ˜10,000 patient nationwide cohort


Despite cost, accessibility, and convenience advantages of diagnostic ambulatory video-EEG monitoring (AVEM) over inpatient VEM, some clinicians tend to favor inpatient VEM even when inpatient level-of-care may not be medically needed, mainly because of two concerns, one practical and another technical. First, AVEM may be assumed less likely than inpatient VEM to capture patient events on video because it is more challenging to ensure that patient remains within video-camera field-of-view in an ambulatory setting than in a hospital room.
