Why maintain a seizure diary to track seizure attacks

1
  • 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

    This template shown below can be freely downloaded from the Nayi Disha web-page. The seizure diary serves as a record of episode specific events, whereas the seizure log documents the number of seizure episodes experienced in any given month within the span of a year.
