Abstract

To evaluate the association between cerebral hypoperfusion and seizure termination, we compared seizure duration in seven patients with syncopal ictal asystole (IA), seven with non-syncopal ictal bradycardia, and ten with non-bradycardic seizures. Mean seizure duration was 34.4 ± 13. s in IA, 67 ± 28.9. s in ictal bradycardia, and 82.1 ± 31.1 in non-bradycardic seizures. These were significantly different (ANOVA, p< 0.02). This suggests cerebral hypoxia-ischemia favors seizure termination.
