Have you thought about acquiring a portable EEG monitor for your ED?
Amplitude adjusted bedside EEG machines are relatively easy to use &
interpret. The readings are not as sensitive as conventional EEG's performed in
neurology labs. However, if the patient is still (i.e. paralyzed), they are very
useful to detect ongoing seizure activity, without the issue of motion artifact.
Our neonatologists use this point of care technology on a regular basis. As far
as transporting patients is concerned, as a tertiary level ED, we do not
transfer out. Our specialty transport team is a nurse/RT or medic team. Hope
