C58 - Clinical Epilepsy III: Advanced (Status, Beyond AED, Video EEG)

Event Time: Sunday April 23, 2017 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): Epilepsy/Clinical Neurophysiology (EEG)
Director(s): Tobias Loddenkemper MD
Description: Faculty will review and discuss complicated aspects of diagnosing and treating patients with epilepsy with a focus on tertiary aspects. The recognition of acute repetitive seizures and status epilepticus in their various forms, from subtle to convulsive, will be discussed in detail. Management options will be reviewed in various settings, including in the home, the emergency room, inpatient, and the intensive care unit. The latest definition for drug resistant epilepsy will be discussed and how to apply it to an individual patient. Therapeutic options beyond antiepileptic drugs will be reviewed in detail, including diet, devices, surgery, and marijuana. Faculty will review the latest advances in each topic discussed. Issues most useful to clinical practice will be emphasized by using a case-based approach. Video case presentations will be used to illustrate different seizure types in an engaging manner with the audience. This program complements C29: Clinical Epilepsy I: Basics and C41: Clinical Epilepsy II: Considerations Across the Age Span—Pediatrics, Pregnancy and Elderly, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to recognize when a patient meets criteria for acute repetitive seizures, status epilepticus, and drug resistant epilepsy. Participants should be able to know the latest therapeutic approaches to these patients in a variety of settings from home, to outpatient clinic, and in the hospital. Participants should recognize when to consider treatments in addition to AEDs and which ones to consider given a specific patient seizure type and clinical scenario. Participants will become more familiar with classifying seizures through video presentations.
