Human Brain
  • The brain is the most complex part of the human
    body.
  • This three-pound organ is the seat of
    intelligence, interpreter of the senses,
    initiator of body movement, and controller of
    behavior.
  • Lying in its bony shell and washed by protective
    fluid, the brain is the source of all the
    qualities that define our humanity.
  • The brain is the crown jewel of the human body.

3
What are Seizures?
  • A seizure is a sudden surge of electrical
    activity in the brain that usually affects how a
    person feels or acts for a short time.
  • Seizures are not a disease in themselves.
  • There are symptoms of many different disorders
    that can affect the brain.
  • The seizures in epilepsy may be related to a
    brain injury or a family tendency, but often the
    cause is completely unknown.

4
What Happens During A Seizures?
  • Sudden loss of consciousness, usually without
    warning,
  • A general stiffening of the body, often with
    forceful expiration of air,
  • If the person having the seizure is standing when
    this happens, there can be a hard fall to ground
    or floor,
  • There may be biting of the tongue,
  • Passage of urine,
  • Defecation or vomiting (rarely),
  • Sometimes a change in color to a purplish-
  • blue.
  • This phase generally lasts about 30 seconds.

5
What is Epilepsy?
  • Epilepsy is a neurological condition.
  • It is a chronic (long-lasting) medical condition
    marked by recurrent epileptic seizures.
  • An epileptic seizure is an event of altered brain
    function caused by abnormal or excessive
    electrical discharges from brain cells.
  • Hence, Epilepsy is sometimes called a seizure
    disorder.

7
Causes of Epilepsy?
  • In less than half the cases of epilepsy, there is
    a specific identifiable brain problem that causes
    the seizures. These include
  • Infectious illness (such as meningitis or
    encephalitis),
  • Brain malformation during pregnancy,
  • Trauma to the brain (including lack of oxygen)
    due to an accident before, during, or after birth
    or later in childhood,
  • Metabolic disorders (chemical imbalances in the
    brain),
  • Brain tumors,
  • Blood vessel malformation,
  • Strokes,
  • Chromosome disorders.

8
How is Epilepsy Diagnosed?
  • Medical History- The physician asks for a
    detailed description of the seizures, as well as
    family and personal health histories (including
    pregnancy, birth and development).
  • Physical Exam and Lab Tests- A complete physical
    is done to determine whether the seizures are
    caused by an specific physical or metabolic
    problems.
  • Neurological Exam- This includes a thorough study
    of the nervous system. An EEG (electroencephalogra
    m) may help identify any abnormal electrical
    activity in the brain. CT or MRI scans may be
    used to examine the internal structure of the
    brain.

How is Epilepsy Treated?
  • Most people who have epilepsy - about 80 percent
    - can have their seizures controlled by taking
    medicines. Sometimes, if the medicine does not
    work, doctors may operate on the brain or put
    some kids on a special diet (called a "ketogenic"
    diet).
  • Epilepsy does not get worse as people get older.
    In fact, many kids with epilepsy get better as
    they get older and can stop taking medicine.

How You Can Manage Your Epilepsy?
  • The more you take control, the better you can
    manage your epilepsy -
  • Understand your epilepsy, including your seizure
    type.
  • Make sure to talk to your neurologist or
    epileptologist about all available treatment
    options.
  • Bring your epilepsy medications to each
    neurologist visit.
  • Take your medication regularly. Linking this to a
    routine may be helpful (when you brush your
    teeth, prepare for bed, etc). There are also
    devices that can helplike a watch that beeps
    when your dose is due.
  • Get enough sleeplack of it can bring on
    epileptic seizures.
  • Keep following up with your neurologist. If you
    are having seizures or are having difficulty with
    side effects, you may need to change your
    epilepsy medicine or dose.
