Example text

In all stages, compensatory mechanisms require adequate airway, breathing, circulation, and cerebral blood flow. A time-dependent efficacy of treatment occurs in experimental models of SE. This decreased benzodiazepine response occurs rapidly after the onset of SE in young animals with ages corresponding to a human toddler [15]. Diazepam and the other benzodiazepines enhance the function of a subset of benzodiazepinesensitive GABAA receptors. The surface expression of these receptors declines during SE resulting from activity-dependent trafficking of subunits of GABAA receptors [12].

Scott (1) Recognize the seizure May require CEEG monitoring in some patients (2) Maintain the vital signs by ensuring the ABCs: airway, breathing, and circulation (3) Treat the Seizure, if duration > 5 min Certain circumstances require immediate treatment (4) Identify and treat the precipitating cause, if known (5) Determine if an AED is needed to prevent subsequent seizure activity AED antiepileptic drug, CEEG continuous EEG The patient with epilepsy has a lowered seizure threshold, and certain factors, such as intercurrent illness or sleep deprivation, may precipitate a seizure.

Cell depolarization results in sodium ion influx which lowers the RMP and causes depolarization. If depolarization is excessive, an epileptic discharge is generated. There is a high extracellular chloride ion concentration at rest. After depolarization, a chloride ion influx repolarizes the cell and reestablishes the RMP. Maintaining the RMP is dependent on the Na-K ATP pump. Acute neurologic insults, such as hypoxia, ischemia, or hypoglycemia, result in failure of the Na-K membrane pump, with the inability to restore the RMP and excessive depolarization.
