Poster dilemma

  1. I am currently working on a series of posters to take with me for a lecture on traumatic and non-traumatic neuro emergencies. So far, I've had no trouble coming up with visuals for meningitis (photos of demonstrations of positive kernigs sign etc), Stroke (facial droops etc), and trauma (ventric mgmt diagram) However, I am stuck on Status Epilepticus. I definitely don't need a photo of a person having a seizure!!! I can't think of anything to make the poster at all interesting. It will have all the basic treatment at a glance as well as some reasons why early treatment is important. My latest thought is to get an empy bag of Phenytoin some IV tubing and simply stick that in the area of the poster involving treatment. As you can see I need some help! I am not a student and am not looking for anyone to do my homework as I already have all the facts, however, I could use a creative boost- Any suggestions? Many Many thanks in advance! Any ideas would be very very cool

    Are there any cool photos in your Med-Surg Book?

    Status Epilepticus- have no idea what you could use for that.

    Sorry I'm not much help, my brain is mush at this hour.

    Good Luck.

    I was thinking the same thing..a picture of the brain, or a copy of an abnormal MRI or something...

    That might just do it- With most of the other problems, there is always some piece of unfamiliar equipment to demostrate, or some diagnostic symptoms, but with Status- well, its usually quite apparent! I was also thinking of getting a copy of an abnormal EEG....This is feeling better already. Oh, i don't know where my Med surg book is, so that sort of cuts that out.
