concious movement

Burak Tatlı, Serhat Güler
Non epileptic paroxysmal events are recurrent movement disorders with acute onset and ending, which may mimic epilepsy. The duration, place, timing of the attacks, and state of conciousness may confuse pediatricians about the diagnosis of epilepsy and non epileptic paroxysmal events. The key point in the diagnosis is taking an accurate and detailed history. Wrong diagnosis can give rise to anxiety of both the family and the child, interruptions in the child's education, limitations in career planning, and irreversible damages in the long term...

The primary aim of the study was to explore cardiorespiratory reflexes originating from laryngeal C fiber endings in the neonatal period. Seventeen lambs were instrumented for recording glottal adductor and diaphragm EMG, heart rate, systemic arterial pressure and respiratory movements. C fiber blockade was induced in eight lambs by 30 mg/kg capsaicin, the remaining nine lambs serving as controls. Cardiorespiratory reflexes were induced in non-sedated lambs by flowing air, menthol or 13% CO2, or by injecting water or 50 microg capsaicin in the laryngeal inlet through an endoscope...

Two patients sustained an ischemic brain stem infarction during medical examination and treatment. The first patient lost consciousness and the spontaneous respiration ceased during X-ray examination of the cervical spine when the neck was hyperextended. After some minutes he regained conciousness but was found to be tetraplegic, and the patient deceased 4 months later. The angiogram revealed thrombosis of the basilar artery. The other patient had profuse nosebleed and was treated with posterior tamponation during which she sat for about 10 min with the neck hyperextended...

The authors report three patients suffering since infancy from transient attacks of paresis. The flaccid pareses most frequently affect the extremities in a hemiplegic fashion, but occasionally there is monoparesis or quadriparesis. The laterality and degree of the paresis are variable. Conciousness is always preserved, and in two cases attacks were preceded by ocular motor disturbances (skew deviation, nystagmoid jerks and conjugate deviations). Exceptionally, the transient hemiparesis may be preceded by a grand mal epileptic fit, though they are more likely to appear sporadically and independently of the paretic changes...
