Description

The recognition of neonatal seizures is one of the most challenging tasks facing providers of neonatal care. Because the relative frequency of neonatal seizures is low, providers may not be familiar with their clinical presentation. However, even when seizure-like activity is identified, clinicians need to keep in mind that not all infants who manifest seizure-like activity, in fact, have seizures. Case presentations will be used to illustrate the various causes of both seizure and seizure-like activity. 

Learning Objective:

  • Describe the differences between neonatal seizure activity and seizure-like activity.

Speaker(s):
