Seizure Mdm

Seizure MDM This patient presents with symptoms consistent with acute seizure, most likely due to _. I considered, but think less likely, secondary etiologies of epileptic seizures to include drug / toxin etiologies (ETOH, stimulants, medication side effects), metabolic disturbances (glucose, Na), acute CNS infections (meningitis, encephalitis ...

Pearls. Consider nonconvulsive status: persistent change in behavior that lasts 30 minutes after a seizure. Look for positive symptoms (twitching, eye deviation, jerking) and negative (aphasia, catatonia, mutism). Many patients will just not respond. Think about this in head trauma patients with a decreased GCS and a negative initial CT. Also ...

Seizure Mdm - Patient had one episode of simple seizure that lasted less than 5 min and did not recur or require antiepileptic treatment. No apparent underlying cause of seizure and no postictal state. Patient has no evidence of meningitis (HA, photophobia, neck stiffness or AMS), no focal neuro exam to indicate mass, no hx of epilepsy and no altered status ...

Clonic seizures (rhythmic jerking) Tonic seizures (stiffening) Tonic–clonic seizures (Older term: grand mal) Atonic seizures (loss of muscle tone -> drop attacks) SUDEP. Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy; Generalized tonic-clonic seizure is the major risk factor for SUDEP, and seizure freedom is strongly associated with decreased risk

MDM. _ patient with a vesicular rash on an erythematous base in a dermatomal pattern consistent with herpes zoster. Not immunocompromised and without signs of systemic or disseminated infection. Low suspicion for alternate etiology of rash such as SJS, drug rash, viral exanthem, or other emergent cause of rash.

Novelty-MDM is based on a selection procedure to prevent erroneous epochs being included into the baseline buffer thereby improving feature normalization and subsequent seizure detection. Although Novelty-MDM resulted in better performance for the majority (11/17) of patients, in four patients performance was lower compared to MDM.

Adult patients visiting the emergency department (ED) with first-time seizures fall into 2 groups. Patients in the first group include those with altered mental status, focal neurologic abnormalities, signs of infection or significant medical disorder that requires an exten-sive work-up. Patients in the second group, which is the focus of this ...

A child's first seizure may be caused by an acute illness, such as a metabolic derangement or infectious disorder, and be nonrecurrent, or may represent the beginning of epilepsy. A decision must be made about initiating chronic antiseizure medication treatment if a potentially reversible acute cause is not found during the evaluation. (See ...

Terminology related to seizures can be confusing. Epilepsy (also called epileptic seizure disorder) is a chronic brain disorder characterized by recurrent ( ≥ 2) seizures that are unprovoked (ie, not related to reversible stressors) and that occur > 24 hours apart. A single seizure is not considered an epileptic seizure.
