Empowering the Patient
Ambulatory EEG and 72-Hour Video Ambulatory EEG monitoring have become the trusted way of diagnosing seizure disorders in patients. This monitoring is typically provided in a hospital setting, increasing the cost and inconvenience to the patients. Health Star Alliance providers offer the EEG monitoring to their patients in the convenience of the patient’s home. Convenience, coupled with 24/7 tech support, convenient setup times (including holidays and weekends) and highly developed EEG scanning make Ambulatory EEG or 72-Hour Ambulatory Video EEG an ideal choice for your patients.

Nerve conduction velocity tests are designed to evaluate nerve damage in arms and legs…such as numbness, tingling or weakness in arms and legs. NCV measures nerve activity between two sites of stimulation or between a stimulus and a recording site. It is then determined how long it takes for the impulse to travel from the stimulated site to the muscle. People with diabetes sometimes suffer from neuropathy, or nerve damage due to high blood sugar levels. Treatment is based on symptoms, and ranges from medicine to braces. Beyond analyzing nerve activity in diabetes patients, NCV is helpful in diagnosing carpal tunnel syndrome and metabolic, inflammatory and immune neuropathies.
Retinal/IOP is used to document intraocular pressure (IOP). Fundus photography utilizes a retinal camera to photograph various parts of the eye and recognize/monitor the progression of diabetic retinopathy over time. This eye disease is a complication of diabetes and causes damage to blood vessels in the retina, possibly leading to significant vision loss and often blindness. The advanced retinal/IOP photo documentation is also needed to monitor macular degeneration and retinal neoplasms, or to detect glaucoma, multiple sclerosis or other problems associated with the central nervous system.
