Counsel Patients On Seizure Events And Triggers

Counsel Your Patients To Better Manage Their Epilepsy

Pairing long-term real-world intracranial EEG (iEEG) data with patient-reported seizures can help identify lifestyle factors that can influence seizure activity.

Uncover Seizure Triggers

CAFFEINE
Clinicians at the Cleveland Clinic were able to counsel a patient to drink less caffeine on the weekend by pairing RNS System data with patient-reported seizures to show that high caffeine intake correlated with more epileptiform activity.1†

Gain Insight Into Seizure Events

Anxiety or Epileptic Seizures?
Clinicians at the University of Alabama were able to counsel an epilepsy patient who had comorbid anxiety disorder. Using iEEG data from the RNS System, they identified her prolonged dizzy spells to be anxiety attacks rather than epileptic seizures.2†

Reveal Seizure Cycles

Circadian Rhythms
Electrographic data from the RNS System showed that over 90% of patients demonstrated a robust circadian pattern in electrographic activity. This information can be used to inform medication timing recommendations and counsel patients.3
