Understanding the “Bizarre” and “Unique” World of Epilepsy
Stacia Kalinoski

“You must have a multiple personality disorder,” one man told me after witnessing a seizure. “Psychotic episode,” was a coworker's description. “Bizarre” and “unique,” wrote one of my doctors. Seizures come in many forms, and nurses are patients’ first source of calm after the storm. In this session, I share my personal journey, along with video clips. Recognizing uncommon seizures and different postictal states can help you better understand and care for your patients.
