Approach to Seizures in the Neonate
Seizures are the most common neurological emergency in the neonatal period, but heir recognition, characterisation, and treatment may be difficult. Although most seizures in infants are acute provoked, a significant minority represent the onset of a neonatal epilepsy. This webinar will be case-based in order to promote active learning and stimulate discussion. The goal is to provide a state of the art approach to diagnosis, phenotyping and treatment of seizures and epilepsies in the neonate.
