Documentation of seizures
Accurate recording of seizure descriptions by witnesses is an important part of managing a person’s epilepsy. There are no definitive diagnostic tests for epilepsy or for determining a particular seizure type. Therefore, doctors rely on accurate accounts and recording of frequency and severity of seizures, to:
- make a diagnosis
- guide treatment
- determine potential triggers
- differentiate seizure types or new seizure presentations
