Abstract

Two methods of monitoring of patients with suspected or preliminarily recognized epilepsy are described in the paper: (1) continuous casette recording and (2) video recording of eeg. The former method facilitates recording and classification of epileptic seizures in the patient's home setting, in his daily life. Video-eeg monitoring during hospitalization allows to analyse the type of attacks, and thus aids a more accurate differential diagnosis. (Eds.)
