Could ambulatory electroencephalogram increase diagnostic accuracy in children with epilepsy?


  • Ambulatory electroencephalogram (AEEG) is clinically useful in two thirds of paediatric patients accessed.

Why this matters

  • Prolonged EEG monitoring can increase the diagnostic yield compared to routine EEG with AEEG being particularly useful in the diagnosis of encephalopathy with status epilepticus during sleep (ESES).
