Hands – off neurologisch onderzoek: ‘aanvallen’ is het nu een epileptische aanval?

Sinds het gebruik van de smartphone is het aantal videofragmenten dat dierenartsen krijgen van honden(katten) met aanvalsgewijze stoornissen erg toegenomen. Een video kan erg veel informatie geven, maar toch is het niet altijd gemakkelijk om een epileptische aanval van andere aanvallen te onderscheiden. Door het tonen van videofragmenten van patiënten met ‘aanvallen’ zal uitgelegd worden hoe je een epilepsieaanval kan onderscheiden van aanvallen die een andere oorsprong kennen zoals syncope, evenwichtsstoornissen, bewegingsstoornissen … Het achterhalen van de oorsprong van aanvallen is erg belangrijk omdat dit gevolgen heeft voor de behandeling en de prognose. 

Deze video maakt deel uit van een reeks rond hands-off neurologisch onderzoek. Klik hier voor de volledige lijst.
