In this case study, Dr. Katherine Standley covers an extensive patient history of a 46-year-old woman with syncope events and previous head trauma to her right frontal region. With many psychosocial stressors due to death in the family, the patient had an unremarkable MRI and EEG.

Later, with a repeat EEG showing no epileptic activity, a long term ambulatory video EEG was ordered for a more clarified etiology of her events. The 72 hour ambulatory video EEG allowed push button events to be recorded when the patient was feeling off or irregular.

  • Her initial diagnosis and symptoms that led to the syncope
  • The medications that were used, and the results they yielded
  • What the 72 hour ambulatory video EEG revealed
  • How the AEEG provided conclusive evidence and a solid diagnosis
  • Where the patient was referred to afterwards

We here at RSC believe in the efficacy of in-home video EEG, and this case study reinforces the powerful diagnostic yield it provides to patients (especially this woman in particular).
