Febrile Seizures

In this episode we are going to talk about febrile seizures.  We see this chief complaint a lot in the ED so it’s important that we know this topic really well.  Today’s script was written by Dr. Andrea Sarchi and will review how to do a good history and physical, how to rule out serious pathology without overtesting, and how to talk with parents.  While simple febrile seizures don’t cause any harm to the child, they are very scary for parents so it’s important that we know the facts so we can re-assure them and prevent future worry.
