“I think it’s worth starting to look at these other electrophysiological things, perhaps apart from the seizure discussion, as we address seizures more carefully. We will consider being more cautious and consider new approaches for diagnosing and treating problems that may be associated with them.”
A common theme across the neurology field is patient involvement in processes such as medical definitions. For example, define what a seizure is in an epileptic patient. Patients are being considered for participation in defining medical conditions, but confusion and challenges remain in this process. Additionally, there is a great deal of debate about the public’s understanding of what a seizure is and what epilepsy is. “Stroke” is a term with multiple divergences in experience, thus having a more specific definition provided by clinicians and patients may lead to more targeted treatment. I have.
Michael Sperling, M.D., Attendees at the 2022 American Epilepsy Society Annual Meeting, December 2-6 in Nashville, Tennessee, neurology live® In an interview, he shared his clinical views on seizure definition for epileptic patients. He addressed the current challenge by defining seizures in a more specific way, considering different presentations. Sperling, a Baldwin-Keyes Professor of Neurology at Thomas Jefferson University, highlighted additional points about seizure types that need more attention in the clinical field.
