Neurology & Stroke Services
If you experience a neurological disorder such as stroke, brain tumors, ALS, sleep disorders, spine injuries, chronic pain or multiple sclerosis, Mountain Vista’s neurological specialists will use the most advanced equipment available to provide diagnosis and treatment. As a nationally certified Primary Stroke Center by Det Norske Veritas (DNV Healthcare), Mountain Vista follows the protocols and guidelines that have been established by the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association to care for stroke patients. Our experienced team of nurses and physicians on the medical staff have been trained using these guidelines to provide high quality care and treatment that focuses on improving long-term quality of life for stroke patients. Mountain Vista participates in the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With The Guidelines®–Stroke program. The goal of the program is to improve the overall quality of care for stroke patients by improving acute stroke treatment and preventing future strokes and cardiovascular events.
The experienced team at Mountain Vista includes neurologists on the medical staff and other health care professionals who specialize in neurological care. We use advanced imaging equipment to diagnose and treat neurological disorders and injuries.
An EEG is a non-invasive test used to detect abnormalities in the electrical activity of the brain. Brain cells communicate by producing tiny electrical impulses. In an EEG, electrodes are placed on the scalp over multiple areas of the brain to detect and record patterns of electrical activity and check for abnormalities. The test causes no discomfort for patients.
The results of the EEG will help the physician diagnose and evaluate the presence and type of seizure disorders and causes of convulsion. Patients with severe head injuries or those receiving life support in an intensive care environment may also require an EEG to investigate brain activities.
