Critical care nurses must be able to adequately identify and document seizure activity, perform appropriate interventions, and recognize signs of AED toxicity. Critical care nurses not only share the responsibility of taking care of epilepsy patients, but also must help in valuable patient and family education as it relates to long-term management. Becoming better informed of the plan of care for epilepsy patients helps optimize expected outcomes and enables patients and families to manage this illness better.
