100 Possible Causes for Apnea during Seizures

  • Hyperventilation

    During the final phase of apnea, the patient showed cyanosis, contact disturbance, grimaces, oral movements of rhyme, and, on three occasions, partial seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A mask was packaged and applied daytime to the face of the patient during episodes of hyperventilation to prevent, together with a psychiatric follow up, rapid falls of PaCO2[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Twenty-nine episodes of severe arterial desaturation (SpO2 50%) were registered, all after the same number of apnea events, with ascent of PtcO2 up to 28 mmHg at the end of apnea[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Periodontitis

    […] infancy, seizure disorders, sleep apnea, visual impairment, audiological dysfunction, weight gain toward adulthood, and thyroid disorders. 10 The immunologic problem is believed[aegisdentalnetwork.com] ), such as shovel-shaped incisors, missing or reduced marginal ridges, nippled appearance of canine tips, and wrinkled occlusal surfaces of molars, are believed to occur during[aegisdentalnetwork.com] […] tooth development. 9 Patients with T21 have an increased incidence of gastrointestinal tract anomalies, congenital heart disease, immunodeficiency, nutritional difficulties during[aegisdentalnetwork.com]

  • Sleep Apnea

    The patient had epileptic seizures and drop attacks only during night-time and it was not recognized during the daytime.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We reported here a patient with the Coffin-Lowry syndrome associated with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Sleep Apnea Syndrome

    Sleep deprivation and hypoxia can decrease the seizure threshold in epilepsy patients. In many epilepsy patients without sleep apnea, seizures may occur on arousal.[epilepsy.com] […] influence on one another that may exacerbate the processes of both conditions: The apneic episodes lead to hypoxemia and to chronic sleep deprivation, because multiple arousals during[epilepsy.com]

  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea

    The patient had epileptic seizures and drop attacks only during night-time and it was not recognized during the daytime.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We reported here a patient with the Coffin-Lowry syndrome associated with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Ondine Syndrome

    The patient was transferred to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) after a sudden episode of concomitant apnea with bradycardia, followed by generalized tonic-clonic seizure.[scielo.br] Laboratory exams during the first week after admission showed dyslipidemia, elevated blood glucose, a 1.7 creatinin (BUN/creatinin ratio higher than 40), normocytic anemia[scielo.br]

  • Streptococcus Pneumoniae

    […] conjugate – 1.2–13.7/100,000 conjugate (with TIV) – 4–44.9/100,000 Severe adverse reactions polysaccharide – rare conjugate – 8% Certain rare adverse events observed during[cdc.gov] PCV7 postmarketing surveillance included, apnea, hypersensitivity reaction including facial edema, dyspnea, bronchospasm, anaphylactic/anaphylactoid reaction including shock[cdc.gov] […] reactions Pneumococcal Vaccines Adverse Reactions Local reactions polysccharide – 30%-50% conjugate – 5%-49% Fever, myalgia polysaccharide – conjugate – 24%-35% Febrile seizures[cdc.gov]

  • Uncinate Seizure

    Apnea during a seizure may be due to muscle contraction of the respiratory muscles or reduced central breathing drive (central apnea).[j-epilepsy.org] Positive spikes were marked, in particular, during hyperventilation, which was interpreted as autonomic epileptic seizures.[f1000research.com] Oldani reported two patients who showed obstructive apnea during seizures in the night. 4 But the apneas were not the typical initial symptoms in those cases.[j-epilepsy.org]

  • Sepsis in Premature Infants

    , diarrhea, abdominal distention, jitteriness, seizures, and jaundice.[msdmanuals.com] Neonatal sepsis is invasive infection, usually bacterial, occurring during the neonatal period.[msdmanuals.com] Signs are multiple, nonspecific, and include diminished spontaneous activity, less vigorous sucking, apnea, bradycardia, temperature instability, respiratory distress, vomiting[msdmanuals.com]

  • Benign Familial Neonatal Epilepsy

    Seizures were brief and the phenotype was of a mixed seizure type, starting with tonic posture, ocular symptoms, apnea, and other autonomic features.[neurology.org] Forty-two percent had their seizure onset on day 3, while remission took place in 68% during the first 6 weeks.[neurology.org]
