Mount Sinai South Nassau has recently introduced a new Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU) on Long Island. This two-bed wing is equipped with advanced video-electroencephalogram (EEG) diagnostic technology and digital video monitors. The EMU also has a team of specialists including epileptologists, neuroradiologists, nurses, social workers, and EEG technicians to provide comprehensive care to patients.
