The Department of epileptology and somnology at Neuroaxis

Epilepsy is a neurological disease, which consists of periodic disturbances of the electrical activity of the brain. The normal neuronal activity is disturbed, resulting in different sensory experiences or strange behaviours that may associate convulsions, muscle spasms, and loss of consciousness.
Epilepsy is a disease that can be caused by several factors, yet the occurance of a single crisis does not necessarily imply a diagnosis of epilepsy. It is essential to consult a specialist who can determine the source of the crisis and make a correct diagnosis.

At the Neuroaxis clinic, the team coordinated by Ms. Ioana Mîndruţă is ready to help identify and treat epileptic affections.

Equipment

In the Laboratory of Epileptology and Sleep Medicine of Neuroaxis Clinic, we want to provide our patients with the highest quality services. The monitor room is equipped so as to enjoy the most comfortable stay, and the equipment used meets the most demanding medical and technical standards on the market.

Patients are monitored with the help of a Nicolet electroencephalograph (EEG) of the latest generation with wireless 64-channel technology, produced by the American company Natus.

During the investigation, patients wear a helmet on which the electrodes connected to the EEG video camera are mounted. These monitor the electrical activity of the brain, heart, limbs and the level of oxygenation of the blood. The investigation is complemented by the video and audio recording of the investigation, and patients are permanently monitored by specialised personnel.

To perform any type of electroencephalographic investigation, it is necessary to consult a neurologist, specialising in epilepsy or somnology, who can recommend this type of investigation.

Neuroaxis services

The Neuroaxis team of consultants will be available for specialist consultations. In our clinic we carry out the following types of investigations:

  • EEG diurnal video, for 3 hours and for 8 hours;
  • Nocturnal EEG video of 12 hours;
  • EEG video for 24, 48 and 72 hours;
  • Source localization (EEG mapping).

We also perform 12-hour nocturnal polysomnography investigations known as the MSLT (Multi Sleep Latency Test).
