Summary:

Epilepsy has been shrouded in myth and misunderstanding throughout history. It’s not a single disease entity; rather, it’s a heterogeneous group of disorders that have a common thread — abnormal nerve cell (neuronal) activity that produces seizures. Prehospital intervention begins with assessment, and the assessment of the postictal patient can be critical to a patient’s management. A detailed history will help determine seizure triggers and types. Through interview and observation, the provider needs to determine the duration of the seizure, what the patient was doing immediately before the seizure, what medications are taken, and the time of the last dose.

Objectives:

The goal of this seizure disorder continuing education program is to update nurses, EMTs, and paramedics about identification, etiologies, treatment, and interventions for seizures, and the patients who have them. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Identify causes of seizure disorders
  • List current methods of treatment, including medications, surgical interventions, and diet
  • Describe interventions for the acute management of seizures
