Overview of Epilepsy

We'll give a fundamental overview of epilepsy in this module. A neurological condition called epilepsy results in periodic seizures. The brain's aberrant electrical activity is the cause of these seizures. The first step in helping those who are impacted by epilepsy is to understand the condition.

Types of Epileptic Seizures

Find out about the many seizure types linked to epilepsy. They consist of absence seizures, focal seizures, and generalised seizures. Understanding each type's telltale indications and symptoms is essential for providing the right care and assistance.

Factors and Initiators

Examine the possible origins and stimulants of epilepsy. Although the precise reason is frequently unknown, hereditary, traumatic brain injury, and infections may be involved. Furthermore, being aware of typical triggers such as stress, sleep deprivation, or flashing lights might help people better manage their condition.

Management and Treatment Alternatives

Learn about the several approaches of treating epilepsy that are available. These could involve prescription drugs, alterations to one's way of life, and occasionally, surgery. Making educated judgements is made easier for patients and carers when they are aware of the treatment environment.

Giving First Aid and Support

Find out ways to help those who are having epileptic seizures. This lesson gives you the practical skills you need to help someone having a seizure, from setting up a secure atmosphere to knowing when and how to offer first aid. Supportive behaviours can have a big impact on maintaining wellbeing and safety.
