Seizures are caused by abnormal electrical discharges in the brain. Seizures can involve both the body (convulsions) and mind (altered mental status) or only parts of the body. Seizures are life-threatening when a condition known as status-epilepticus occurs, meaning the seizure will not subside (1). Seizures can cause changes in behavior, mood, or feelings. A seizure can be a frightening experience for a parent or child. The nurse plays a critical role when seizures in children occur by imparting knowledge about the disease, teaching self-management skills, and discussing treatment options. Seizures in children are common, as approximately 4-5% will experience one at some point during their childhood. About 1% of children are diagnosed with epilepsy, and 1 in 26 people develop this neurological condition during their lifetime (2).
