BMJ Clinical Review: Febrile seizures

Visit

Patel N, Ram D, Swiderska N, Mewasingh LD, Newton RW, Offringa M

This review aims to summarise how to recognise a febrile seizure and rule out other underlying causes, how to manage febrile seizures and how to deal with common questions posed by parents in this situation.

Review: Evaluation and Management of Pediatric Febrile Seizures in the Emergency Department

Visit

Hampers LC, Spina LA

This review describes the differences between simple and complex febrile seizures in pediatric patients. The document provides an overview of clinical assessment, laboratory testing, imaging and discharge instructions.

Key studies English (5) French All (5)

Key Study: Utility of initial EEG in first complex febrile seizure

Visit

Harini C, Nagarajan E, Kimia AA, de Carvalho RM, An S, Bergin AM, Takeoka M, ...

This retrospective study examined the utility of detected epileptiform abnormalities on the initial EEG following a first complex febrile seizure in predicting subsequent epilepsy.

Key Study: Emergency Management of febrile status epilepticus: results of the FEBSTAT study

Visit

Seinfeld S, Shinnar S, Sun S, Hesdorffer DC, Deng X, Shinnar RC, O'Hara K, No...
