First Seizure Evaluation
What Is a First Seizure Evaluation?
When a child’s first seizure is unprovoked (not triggered by trauma, hypoglycemia or fever), it’s important to determine if the child has epilepsy or an underlying neurological disorder. Once a child has one seizure, there’s a heightened risk for more. That’s why it’s important for family members and caregivers to recognize signs of seizures—and be prepared to respond.
