Reflex anoxic seizures
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.

European Journal of Arrhythmia & Electrophysiology. 2018;4(1):28–30 DOI: https://doi.org/10.17925/EJAE.2018.04.01.28
Psychogenic nonepileptic seizures (PNES), or pseudoseizures, are paroxysmal episodes that resemble, and often misdiagnosed as, epileptic seizures; however, they are psychological (i.e., emotional, stress-related) in origin. Unlike epileptic seizures, PNES do not result from an abnormal electrical discharge from the brain; they are a physical manifestation of a psychological disturbance.1 PNES may be thought of […]
