Abstract

See full text

The present invention provides systems and methods for ambulatory, long term monitoring of a physiological signal from a patient. At least a portion of the systems of the present invention may be implanted within the patient in a minimally invasive manner. In preferred embodiments, brain activity signals are sampled from the patient with an externally powered leadless implanted device and are transmitted to a handheld patient communication device for processing to estimate the patient's propensity for a seizure.
