NUR117: Assignment Seizure  Disorder

12. A nurse is caring for a school-aged-child who is admitted with a poorly controlled seizure disorder. Which of the following should the nurse include in the plan of care?

Seizure Disorder

Seizure Disorder

• In any infant between 6 and 12 months of age who
presents with a seizure and fever, a LP is an option when
the child is considered deficient in Haemophilus
influenzae type b (Hib) or Streptococcus pneumonia
immunizations (ie, has not received scheduled
immunizations as recommended) or when immunization
status cannot be determined because of an increased
risk of bacterial meningitis.

• A LP is an option in the child who presents with a seizure
and fever and is pretreated with antibiotics, because
antibiotic treatment can mask the signs and symptoms of
meningitis.

• An electroencephalogram (EEG)should not be performed
in the evaluation of a neurologically healthy child with a
simple febrile seizure.

• The following tests should not be performed routinely
for the sole purpose of identifying the cause of a simple
febrile seizure: measurement of serum electrolytes,
calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, or blood glucose or
complete blood cell count.
• Neuroimaging should not be performed in the routine
evaluation of the child with a simple febrile seizure.

Febrile Seizures
• Prognosis: excellent, except:
• 30-50% risk of recurrence

Treatment
• Prophylactic treatment with anticonvulsant agents could
be considered if neurologic development is abnormal, it
is a complex febrile seizure, or the child is younger than 1
year.

• Valproate and phenobarbital appear to be effective in
prophylaxis; phenytoin and carbamazepine do not
prevent recurrences. The adverse effects of
anticonvulsant therapy must be weighed against the
possible benefits.
• No evidence has been found that prophylactic treatment
reduces the risk of subsequent epilepsy.
