PURPOSE We studied heart-rate (HR) changes at the transition from the preictal to the ictal state in patients with focal epilepsies to gain some insight into the mechanisms involved in the neuronal regulation of cardiovascular function. METHODS We assessed ECG changes during 145 seizures recorded with scalp EEG in 58 patients who underwent video-EEG(More)
PURPOSE To study cardiac alterations (changes in heart rate and cardiac arrhythmias) at the transition from the pre-ictal to the ictal state during focal epileptic seizures. METHODS We assessed ECG changes during 92 seizures recorded with scalp EEG in 30 patients and 35 seizures in 11 patients evaluated with subdural strip and/or grid electrodes.(More)
