In this course we cover all aspects of Epilepsy – we look at what it is, the most common symptoms you might see and discuss some of the most common types of seizures, including seizures that are not caused by Epilepsy. The different triggers and treatment options are considered as well as Emergency Medication administration (Buccal Midazolam). We use the mnemonic A.C.T.I.O.N to give some advice about what to do when someone is having an Epileptic Seizure. Finally we discuss some of the rare complications linked to Epilepsy and think about the impact of Epilepsy on a child.
