The median duration of nursing interventions with simultaneous epileptiform activity was 1158 seconds (interquartile range, 880-1466 seconds).
After the administration of intravenous diazepam (5 mg), the epileptiform activity and left arm jerks were completely resolved, and the EEG exhibited diffuse delta activity with a frequency of 1.5 Hz.
Two patients had normal EEG pattern, and 6 patients had evolution to other epileptiform activities.
Regarding the laterality of the epileptiform activity in the EEG, ten children (70% male) presented left-sided discharges, 9 children (78% male) right-sided discharges and eight children (75% female) presented bilateral discharges.
Higher frequency of epileptiform discharges in EEG is reported in children with over-activity, behavioural problems and SNHL.
[22] In PTZ model, the EEG recordings of the disease control animals represented ictal epileptiform progressing to an epileptiform burst pattern, accompanying clonic activity.
The EEG was repeated, which revealed foci of epileptiform discharges in the posterior quadrants along with global cerebral dysfunction.
Several episodes of generalized spike and wave activity of 3 Hz that lasted 2-3 seconds during photic stimulation and hyperventilation suggested epileptiform activity.
Electroencephalogram (EEG) recordings done for patient IV-5 during wakefulness showed generalized interictal spike and slow epileptiform discharges that were more prominent anteriorly (Figure 1(b)).
If partially obscured, the CEEG was reviewed for the following patterns: continuous or lateralized slow activity, generalized periodic discharge, lateralized periodic discharges (historically termed periodic lateralized epileptiform discharges (PLEDs)), burst suppression, and/or EEG seizures and/or status epilepticus.
