Inpatient services essentially revolve around hospitalized patients undergoing continuous EEG monitoring of some type. The service is staffed by two faculty members and a variable number of residents and fellows. The Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU) is a dedicated 8-bed unit on the 5th floor of the Neuromedicine Hospital (NMH) serving epilepsy patients specifically admitted for diagnosis or pre-surgical workup of of refractory epilepsy. Patients undergoing invasive EEG monitoring are jointly managed by the epilepsy faculty, critical care faculty and the neurosurgery service in the Neurointensive Care Unit on the 4th floor of NMH. The Epilepsy Division also oversees continuous portable video-EEG monitoring (long-term monitoring; LTM) on acutely ill patients across the entire UFHealth Gainesville campus.
