According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other studies, up to 10% of people have a seizure at one point in their life and over three million people nationwide have epilepsy. Seizures are common. In many cases, the cause of a seizure is unknown; however, seizures can happen after a head injury, an infection, a stroke, or another illness. This course describes the different types of seizures and the signs and symptoms of a seizure, the complications of seizures, and reviews the steps to take when a person is having a seizure along with the diagnosis process and treatment options. Please note, this is Part I of a two-part series. Part II provides more detail, and a more in-depth discussion of diagnosis and treatment options.
