  2. 2. Introduction Febrile seizures(FS) are defined as a convulsions that can happen during a fever (febrile means “feverish”). They affect kids 3 month to 6 year old. Febrile most common in babies of 12-18 months old. The seizures usually last for a few minutes and a fever above 100.4⁰F (38°C ) Types of febrile seizures Simple febrile seizures. Complex febrile seizers. 2
  3. 3. Introduction Simple febrile seizures are usually over in a few minutes. But in rare cases they can last up to 15 minutes. During this type of seizure, a child’s whole body convulse, shake and twitch eyes may role and she or he moan or become unconscious. Children sometime vomit or urinate on themselves during the convulsions. Complex febrile seizers can last more than 15 minutes or happen or then once in 24 hours. They may also involve movement or twitching of just one part of the body. Febrile stop on their own While the fever may continue for sometime. 3
  4. 4. Causes Of Febrile Seizures Infection :-Usually the fever that triggers are caused by a viral infection and less commonly by a bacterial infection, such as flu and roseola. Post –Immunization Seizures :-The risk of febrile seizure may increased due to some childhood immunization,such as Diphtheria,Tetanus and Pertussis vaccinations. Family History :-Some children inherit a family’s tendency to have seizures with a fever. 4
  5. 5. Treatment 5 Patients with active seizures should be treated with airway management. Anti-pyretic drugs (Acetaminophen, Ibuprofen) are used in febrile seizure by given oral or rectal route (when fever is started). Anti-convulsant agents (Diazepam, Lorazepam) after these drugs record child heart rate, blood pressure and breathing. Sometimes by sponging with room temperature water (not cold).
  6. 6. Aim & Objectives 6 Review the risk factor of febrile seizures. To know about the method to Improve Patient care. To Determine the Sign and Symptoms

  10. 10. Febrile seizures are the most common type of childhood seizures. The peak age of onset febrile seizures are 18 months. With temperature more than 38°C. Signs and symptoms include , loss of consciousness, Jerking of arm and legs, difficulty breathing, foaming at the month, Management involve symptom control and treating the cause of the fever. Febrile seizures do not cause neurological damage. Complex FS particularly if prolonged and an abnormal neurological status are recognised risk factor for the development of later epilepsy. It is important to realize some special febrile seizures syndromes ,which can have some long-term neurological abnormalities. 10 Conclusion
  11. 11. The risk of febrile seizures increased after certain combination of vaccines. Like, pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV), trivalent inactivated influenza vaccine and diphtheria-tetanus-acellular-pertussis (DTaP). But the absolute risk of febrile seizures after these combination is less. 11 Conclusion
