Sudden unexpected death associated with epilepsy (SUDEP) is an important clinical problem. Peri-ictal autonomic dysfunction is thought to play a role in SUDEP and few means exist for clinical identification of patients at risk. Sympathetic function was assessed by measuring sympathetic skin responses (SSR) elicited in the hand by auditory or tactile stimulation or by inspiration. Parasympathetic function was assessed by recording the R-R interval (RRI) and determining its variability in… CONTINUE READING
