However, it is a medical emergency if seizures last longer than 5 minutes or if a person has many seizures and does not wake up between them.

Seizures can have many causes, including medicines, high fevers, head injuries and certain diseases. Nevertheless, febrile convulsions in children can be distressing for parents, who should be supported and kept informed by experienced emergency department (ED) nurses.

This article discusses the aetiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis and management of children with febrile convulsion, and best practice for care in EDs. A convulsion is a general term used to describe uncontrollable muscle contractions.

Among some of the common causes of convulsions are epileptic seizures, febrile seizures, non-epileptic seizures, and medication-induced convulsions. Convulsions are the result of abnormal electrical discharges in forebrain neurons that reach the somatic and visceral motor areas and initiate spontaneous, paroxysmal, involuntary movements.

These cerebral dysrhythmias tend to begin and end abruptly, and they have a finite duration. They’re convulsions a child can have during a very high fever that’s usually over to °F (39 to 40°C) or higher.

Epileptic seizures have many causes, including a genetic predisposition for certain types of seizures, head trauma, stroke, brain tumors, alcohol or drug withdrawal, repeated episodes of metabolic insults, such as hypoglycemia, and other sy is a medical disorder marked by recurrent.

Remember that in a considerable proportion of the cases the convulsions may persist in the form of epilepsy and remember that nearly all or quite a large number of children who suffer from convulsions, manifest in later life nervous disorders of different sorts.

Convulsions if frequently repeated may cause permanent mental impairment and they often leave behind, too, traces of cerebral damage.

A febrile seizure refers to a seizure occurring in infancy or childhood usually between three months and five years of age as a result of elevated body temperature in the absence of pathology in the brain.

1 Febrile seizures are commonly encountered in emergency paediatric practice and have been described as the commonest cause of seizure in children under the age of five years.

Febrile seizures are usually self-limiting; increased risk of developing epilepsy is low except in a small number of cases. Most febrile seizures resolve spontaneously and quickly, and do not require acute or long-term anticonvulsant treatment.
