Purpose: Understanding fluctuations of seizure severity within individuals is important for defin-ing treatment outcomes and response to therapy, as well as developing novel treatments for epilepsy. Current methods for grading seizure severity rely on qualitative interpretations from patients and clinicians. Quantitative measures of seizure severity would complement existing approaches, for EEG monitoring, outcome monitoring, and seizure prediction. Therefore, we developed a library of… 



Seizure Clusters, Seizure Severity Markers, and SUDEP Risk

A stochastic nature toSUDEP occurrence is suggested, where seizure clusters may be more likely to contribute to SUDEP if an underlying progressive tendency toward SUDEP has matured toward a critical SUDEP threshold.

Quantitative Assessment of Seizure Severity for Clinical Trials: A Review of Approaches to Seizure Components

A partial consensus about aspects of seizures that are important markers for severity are revealed, however, usefulness of the existing scales is limited by lack of data on responsiveness.

Understanding the Patient Perspective of Seizure Severity in Epilepsy: Development of a Conceptual Model

Qualitative work reinforces the notion that measuring seizure frequency is insufficient and that seizure severity is important in defining the patient’s experience of epilepsy.

Prevalence and predictors of subclinical seizures during scalp video-EEG monitoring in patients with epilepsy

Subclinical seizures are not uncommon in patients with epilepsy, particularly in those with pharmacoresistant epilepsy, abnormal MRI or interictal epileptiform discharges, and they occur in specific circadian patterns and in specific sleep/wake distributions.

On Quantitative Biomarkers of VNS Therapy Using EEG and ECG Signals

Results indicate the importance of timely delivery of VNS to reduce seizure severity and thus help achieve better seizure control for patients with epilepsy and the proposed set of quantitative features could be used as potential biomarkers for predicting long-term response to VNS therapy.

Subclinical seizures during intracranial EEG recording: Are they clinically significant?

Slow changes in seizure pathways in individual patients with focal epilepsy

It is suggested that slow modulatory processes shape within-subject seizure dynamics, leading to variable seizure pathways that may require tailored treatment approaches.

Seizure severity is associated with quality of life independent of seizure frequency
