Clinical observation and nursing strategy during VEEG monitoring on epileptic seizure of patients with intractable epilepsy

Objective: The clinical values of Video Electroencephalogram (VEEG) on the epileptic seizure of patients with intractable epilepsy were observed, and the corresponding nursing keys were summarized.

Methods: From January, 2015 to December, 2016, 60 patients with intractable epilepsy were selected as the observation group. The psychological states of all the patients prior to VEEG were evaluated. The observation group was treated with antiepileptic drugs, and first-aid measures and nursing countermeasures were prepared in case of emergency epileptic seizures during the detection process. Another 60 epileptic patients were selected as the control group. These patients had been treated through conventional nursing methods. Incidences of adverse effects and nursing satisfactions of the two groups were compared.

Results: Preventive measures and good nursing modes were well prepared for the observation group during VEEG. Thus, the VEEG recorded the epileptogenic focus waveform and lesion accurately and helped patients recover from the epileptic seizure. No syndrome was observed in all patients in the observation group. Significant difference was observed between the two groups in terms of incidence of adverse effects and nursing satisfaction (P<0.05).

Conclusions: VEEG is a good diagnostic item for the epileptogenic focus of epileptic patients and provides clinical basis for therapeutic imaging. Moreover, preparing first-aid and nursing measures for epileptic seizures during VEEG is necessary to avoid accidents.
