Criteria for admission for video telemetry:
1. Paroxysmal events: are these seizures or something else? (Child must be having at least 3 episodes per week)
2. Which seizure type/ syndrome type is this in known epilepsy or where do the seizures start (again, at least 3 episodes per week)?
3. Electrical status in sleep? – we can often answer this with a sleep record, but can use telemetry if this has not been successful.
