Age epilesy

Specializes in ambulant care.

Hi folks !

Age epilepsy is hard to recognize at first sight.

The patient doesn´t convulses visibly.

The symptoms are nearer to an apoplex than to a spasm.

The patient comes back from strokeunit: Zero result.

2 weeks later: The same game.

Question: Does anybody knows a useful and "nursing-compatible"

publication about this theme?

All I could find until now --- belongs under the grass scar.:grumpy:
