Documentation of seizures

Epilepsy Queensland can provide you with a template for documentation of seizures. This will assist your doctors with diagnosis and treatment.

 

Accurate recording of seizure descriptions by witnesses is an important part of managing a person’s epilepsy. There are no definitive diagnostic tests for epilepsy or for determining a particular seizure type. Therefore, doctors rely on accurate accounts and recording of frequency and severity of seizures, to:

  • make a diagnosis
  • guide treatment
  • determine potential triggers
  • differentiate seizure types or new seizure presentations
