 Types of Seizures

 
 
Simple Partial- A seizure type limited to a specific area and side of the brain, without loss of consciousness.

Complex Partial- A seizure type limited to a specific area and side of the brain, with the possibility of consciousness being lost or impaired.

Secondarily Generalized- A seizure type beginning in a specific area of the brain and then progressing into a generalized seizure. It is important to describe the beginning of these seizures to possibly identify a focal region.

Tonic- Seizure types characterized by muscle stiffening or rigidity.

Clonic- Seizure types characterized by repetitive jerking motions.

Tonic Clonic- A seizure type often referred to as grand mal seizures. These seizures begin with stiffening of the extremities followed by jerking of the extremities and face.

Myoclonic- A seizure type with rapid, brief contractions of muscles, usually occurring at the same time on both sides of the body.

Myoclonic Cluster- Same as an individual Myoclonic seizure but happens repetitively fairly close together. Seizure Tracker users have the capability of recording a related event count with this seizure type selection.

Atonic- A seizure type with a sudden loss of muscle tone, often resulting in a sudden collapse. These seizures are also known as drop seizures.

Absence- A seizure type with a brief lapse of awareness and or staring spell.

Atypical Absence- A seizure type with a brief lapse of awareness and or staring spell but can be responsive.

Infantile Spasms (cluster)- Clusters of quick, sudden movements often occurring in children between 3 months and two years but can continue through later years.

*Again these descriptions should only be used as a guide. If you have further questions about seizure typing please consult with your care giver.
