Seizure Medical Definition
“What is a Seizure?”
Seizure medical definition: A seizure is a sudden, uncontrollable electric disturbance in the brain. It causes changes in behavior, movements, and levels of consciousness. There are many different kinds of seizures that range in symptoms and severity. This is usually due to where in the brain they originate and how far they are able to spread. Generally, a seizure lasts anywhere from 30 seconds to two minutes. A seizure lasting longer than five minutes is a medical emergency.
Seizure in Medical Malpractice Cases
With seizures, there are a lot of causes and symptoms. Some of the most common symptoms include:
A staring spell
Uncontrollable jerking movements of the arms and legs
Loss of consciousness or awareness
Cognitive or emotional symptoms, such as fear, anxiety or deja vu
While seizures may be more common than you think, they must still be taken very seriously as anything that affects motor control and the brain can have serious consequences if not treated correctly. Seizures can be signs of larger medical issues that if not addressed could lead to further harm to the patient.
