DISORDERS - 3.
If there are indications that
your problems with sleep or alertness might be due to an underlying
seizure disorder, what should you do?
THAT YOU ARE EVALUATED AT A SLEEP CENTER THAT IS FULLY STAFFED
AND EQUIPPED FOR THE EVALUATION AND MANAGEMENT OF SEIZURES!
sleep centers (and, by definition, all sleep laboratories
for breathing disorders) cannot perform full EEG ("brain wave")
monitoring during sleep. Their recording techniques instead
are limited to identifying sleep stages rather than abnormal
bursts of brain electrical activity.
-If you have symptoms that suggest
that you may have a seizure disorder, it would be important
to ask several key questions of any sleep facility before
proceeding with care:
--Does the center have
a neurologist (specialist in disorders of the
brain and nervous system) on staff?
--If so, does that neurologist
interpret overnight sleep recordings?
--Does the center have the
necessary equipment and staff expertise for the
performance of full electroencephalography throughout
