Cardiorespiratory abnormalities during epileptic seizures.
Sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP) is a leading cause of death in young and otherwise healthy patients with epilepsy, and sudden death is at least 20 times more common in epilepsy patients as compared to patients without epilepsy. A signific

Cardiac asystoles misdiagnosed as epileptic seizures.
We report a case of a 78-year-old man who presented several episodes of transient loss of consciousness preceded by sensation of ascending heat from the feet, with increasing frequency and duration within a few weeks. One month later he was admitted

Maternal cardiac arrhythmias during pregnancy and lactation.
Arrhythmias occurring during pregnancy can cause significant symptoms and even death in mother and fetus. The management of these arrhythmias is complicated by the need to avoid harm to the fetus and neonate. It is useful to classify patients with ar

Early postoperative arrhythmias after pediatric cardiac surgery.
This prospective study proposed to determine the incidence, risk factors, and management protocols for early postoperative arrhythmias after pediatric cardiac surgery, with focus on outcomes, using a uniform protocol, and also to see if children oper

Nonketotic hyperglycemia-related epileptic seizures.
Nonketotic hyperglycemia-related seizures (NKH) are rare. We report a case of NKH-related seizures in a patient following a traumatic brain injury.

KCC2 downregulation facilitates epileptic seizures.
GABAA receptor-mediated inhibition depends on the maintenance of low level intracellular [Cl-] concentration, which in adult depends on neuron specific K+-Cl- cotransporter-2 (KCC2). Previous studies have shown that KCC2 was downregulated in both epi

Predicting epileptic seizures in advance.
Epilepsy is the second most common neurological disorder, affecting 0.6-0.8% of the world's population. In this neurological disorder, abnormal activity of the brain causes seizures, the nature of which tend to be sudden. Antiepileptic Drugs (AEDs) a

Biopsychosocial predictors of psychogenic non-epileptic seizures.
Previous studies have identified numerous biological, psychological and social characteristics of persons with psychogenic non-epileptic seizures (PNES) however the strength of many of these factors have not been evaluated to determine which are pred
