8 Possible Causes for Seizures Are Sensitive to Hyperventilation

  • Jankovic Rivera Syndrome

    Abstract Myoclonus occurs in a variety of pathological conditions, some inherited. We recently evaluated 3 members of a Louisiana‐Texas family with an autosomal dominant disorder manifested by adult‐onset, generalized, stimulus‐sensitive myoclonus and slowly progressive distal muscle weakness and wasting. The analyses[…][doi.org]

  • Temporal Lobe Epilepsy

    We describe a rare patient with nonlesional temporal epilepsy who, while hyperventilating during an electroencephalography recording, developed complex partial seizures presenting[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The particular sensitivity of the anterior hippocampus (probably the amygdala) to hypocapnia might be an important factor contributing to seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Absence Seizure

    For typical absence seizures, a classic 3 Hz generalized spike-and-wave pattern, often activated by hyperventilation, is considered the most specific and sensitive test confirming[online.epocrates.com] . 1,6 Sensitivity to light or other photic stimuli is not associated with absence seizure and has been proposed as an exclusion criterion by some researchers. 1 Pathophysiology[uspharmacist.com] […] a diagnosis of absence seizures. 3 Hz generalized spike-and-wave pattern on EEG pathognomonic for typical absence seizures and childhood absence epilepsy From the personal[online.epocrates.com]

  • Juvenile Absence Epilepsy

    . 1,6 Sensitivity to light or other photic stimuli is not associated with absence seizure and has been proposed as an exclusion criterion by some researchers. 1 Pathophysiology[uspharmacist.com] […] asked to overbreathe for up to 3 minutes to trigger an absence episode; almost all untreated patients with childhood absence epilepsy will have absence activity triggered by hyperventilation[uspharmacist.com]

  • Fear

    We describe a rare patient with nonlesional temporal epilepsy who, while hyperventilating during an electroencephalography recording, developed complex partial seizures presenting[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The particular sensitivity of the anterior hippocampus (probably the amygdala) to hypocapnia might be an important factor contributing to seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Familial Febrile Convulsions FEB5

    Infections \u2014 Febrile seizures can occur during both viral and bacterial infections.[passeidireto.com] There is also evidence to suggest that hyperthermia-induced hyperventilation and alkalosis may play a role.[passeidireto.com] Certain ion channels in the brain are temperature sensitive and may generate fever-associated synchronized neuronal activity.[passeidireto.com]
