Effects of Different Treatments on the PTZ-Induced Clonic Seizure
Half a year after finishing the treatment, the patient presented a generalized tonic clonic seizure
and he came into our clinic for further investigations.
"For example if someone witnesses a person having a tonic clonic seizure
the best thing to do is leave them alone.
The essential oil at doses of 50, 100, 200, and 400 mg/kg significantly increased the onset time to myoclonic seizure by 124, 282.3, 359, and 272.2% ([F.sub.(5,41)], 18.79; P < 0.001) and clonic seizure
by 176.2,1294, 354.9, and 275.6% ([F.sub.(5,41)], 25.18; P < 0.001) in comparison to the control group (figure 2).
asiatica, exhibited significant delay in the onset of seizures (p < 0.001) and suppression of clonic seizure
(p < 0.01) when compared with control, and it was statistically significant [Table 1].
His condition is so severe he has to wear a hard hat to protect him from constant seizures during theday and night, whichcan range from twitches known asmyoclonic jerks to full tonic clonic seizures
, during which his whole body can seize up, leading to potentially dangerous falls and injuries.

The most common type of generalized seizure to happen in this case is a tonic clonic seizure
In this study the common seizures types were combination of generalized tonic clonic seizure
with myoclonic seizures in 62.5 % of the total of 8 cases followed by simple partial motor seizures with myoclonic seizures in 37.5 % of the cases.
Here also forceful contractions of the axial musculature in a generalized tonic clonic seizure
produce hyperflexion of spine leading to fractures, especially of the thoracic vertebra (6).
On the other hand, if the child were having a generalized tonic clonic seizure
in the swimming pool, first aid steps would include: keeping her head above the water during the seizure (if this is not possible, she would have to be removed from the water during the seizure); removing her from the water as soon as possible after the seizure has stopped; turning her on her left side to facilitate drainage of secretions and to help keep her airway open; and observing her closely until she has returned to her baseline level of consciousness.
His clonic seizures
have left him battered and bruised due to severe convulsing and shaking.
"This is something I'll have for life now and while my medication has controlled the tonic clonic seizures
, I also have complex partial seizures," she said.
In first two days of her life, generalised clonic seizures
was detected at another clinic and partially controlled with 5 mg/kg/day of phenobarbital treatment.
"The Tonic Clonic seizures
and myoclonic seizures are uncontrollable and relentless, meaning that no emergency intervention is working to stop the continuous seizures.
