Abstract

Single signal seizure detection algorithms suffer from high false positive rates. We have found a set of signals which can be easily monitored by a wristworn device and which produce a distinctive pattern during seizure for patients in an epilepsy monitoring unit (EMU). This pattern is much less likely to be reproduced by nonseizure events in the patient's daily life than are changes in heart rate alone. We collected 108 hours of data from three EMU patients who suffered a combined total of seven seizures, then developed a time series analysis/pattern recognition based algorithm which distinguishes the seizures from nonseizure events with 100% accuracy.
