About the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit.

Epilepsy Monitoring Unit Overview

Thaddeus Nespeca, RN, explains how to prepare, what to bring and what to expect.

At Cleveland Clinic, we have two Epilepsy Monitoring Units (EMU) — one dedicated to adults and another in Cleveland Clinic Children’s reserved for our pediatric patients. These are unique areas designed for round-the-clock patient monitoring. Watch this video to learn what to do the evening prior to your visit to the EMU, the amenities at the EMU, what to bring, and instructions for the day of your procedure.
