Dr. Karen Keough, a pediatric neurologist with Child Neurology Consultants of Austin, stopped by Studio 512 to discuss Epilepsy Awareness Month and new, innovative at-home monitoring technology doctors are now using for children suffering from epilepsy.

Dr. Keough says remote in-home video EEG monitoring offers many advantages for patients who require extended testing, including overnight recording, but don’t require hospitalization. “It goes without saying that a child is most comfortable in their home and sleeping in their own bedroom,” said Dr. Keough. “With remote monitoring, we not only monitor a child in a comfortable setting, we can extend access to those who live in more rural communities and do not have an epilepsy monitoring unit nearby.” For more information, visit www.childneurotx.com.
