Epilepsy Monitoring Unit
- 0Apr 5, '13 by pequenopatoRNHi all,
I just accepted a position on an EMU. I am a new grad (Dec '12) and this will be my first RN position. Is there anyone out there that can give me some advice that could help me prepare for this position before I start? Any information would be appreciated! Thanks!!

- 0Apr 6, '13 by KelRN215Review the various types of seizures and appropriate drug levels for common AEDs. Is this unit exclusively an epilepsy unit or are there other neuro patients as well? Many patients admitted for long term video EEG monitoring are taken off their AEDs or the meds are dose reduced in the hopes of provoking a seizure. Are these patients ever admitted for pre-surgical evals?
