SEIZURES

Seizure in Adults

A seizure is a sudden surge of electrical activity in the brain. A seizure usually affects how a person appears or acts for a short time. Many different things can occur during a seizure. Whatever the brain and body can do normally can also occur during a seizure.

The first step in managing seizure disorders is determining if the abnormal events are actual seizures and if so what type. Care plans for seizure control typically include prescription medication, but can also include Vagal Nerve Stimulators for more severe cases.

Vagal Nerve Stimulation is a medical treatment that includes impulses to the vagus nerve to help the abnormal electrical activity in the brain that can occur during a seizure and or bouts of epilepsy.
