well, from a purely logistical perspective, if you send an EKG kit, it
makes sense to send spare parts, and if you have a couple of extra
kits, there's no reason you couldn't have enough leads for an EEG. It
would certainly be nice to identify kids with seizure disorders,
considering phenobarb is very cheap.
