    An Introduction to Reflex anoxic seizures

    Reflex anoxic seizures (RAS) are non-epileptic events caused by a reflex asystole due to increased vagal responsiveness. Recovery is spontaneous in around 30 to 60 seconds. Once the seizure occurs, management involves the recovery position of the patient, preventing trauma and providing airway clearance. RAS often resemble epileptic seizures, which can make diagnosis challenging; misdiagnosis of RAS as epilepsy is not rare.
