Abstract/OtherAbstract:
To evaluate the association between cerebral hypoperfusion and seizure termination, we compared seizure duration in seven patients with syncopal ictal asystole (IA), seven with non-syncopal ictal bradycardia, and ten with non-bradycardic seizures. Mean seizure duration was 34.4±13s in IA, 67±28.9s in ictal bradycardia, and 82.1±31.1 in non-bradycardic seizures. These were significantly different (ANOVA, p<0.02). This suggests cerebral hypoxia-ischemia favors seizure termination.
