Epilepsy Monitoring Unit

Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU) Our state-of-the-art Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU) is an important part of the evaluation and integrated care of the child with epilepsy and recurrent unprovoked spells.

More than 800 children have been admitted to our 10-bed unit, designed with children in mind. Thanks to Bluetooth wireless technology, patients have the freedom to come and go from their rooms, walk around the unit, and even play in the playroom while still being continuously monitored by the video electroencephalograph (EEG) equipment.

We are supported by a team of caring and highly skilled nurses and nurse educators, EEG technologists, nutritionists and child life specialists whose sole purpose at Cook Children's is to focus on the children in our unit. We are all proud to be part of the team who will be caring for your child, answering your questions and with you every step of the way.
