Seizure or Epilepsy by itself cannot be fully treated, but effective management of it can go a long way in improving a child's quality of life.
In order to handle Epilepsy and seizure episodes better, it is important to understand more about them. This is where keeping a seizure diary can be a valuable resource for parents and the doctor. A seizure diary would include details such as the time, duration and detailed description of every seizure episode experience by a child undergoing epilepsy.
Record keeping everyday changes in seizure behaviour may help gain a better understanding of -
- possible triggers, if any
- seizure patterns
- handling seizure emergencies
- the patient's response to a prescribed therapy
