Impact of Ambulatory EEG in Resource-Limited Regions from Latin America

Inpatient long-term video-electroencephalography (VEEG) monitoring has become the gold standard in the evaluation of patients with seizures and various paroxysmal behaviors or events. However, the availability of this technique in resource-limited countries is very low. Ambulatory electroencephalography (AEEG) monitoring allows prolonged (EEG) recordings in patients’ homes. Hence, AEEG is gaining popularity as a cost-effective alternative for inpatient VEEG.
