Abstract

The successful management of a child with episodic, paroxysmal changes in consciousness or behavior relies on the ability of the physician to answer questions regarding the characterization and classification of the events. Because historical data are often incomplete, the true diagnosis is often in doubt. Recent advances in computer technology have led to techniques which allow simultaneous, long-term monitoring of behavior and electroencephalographic activity. This article discusses the indications for long-term monitoring including the differential diagnosis of paroxysmal events, characterization and classification of seizures, and seizure focus localization.
