Re: Friend In Icu With Multiple Seizures No Head Injury - Blood Clots

Debi sorry to hear about your friend. Has he had a seizure since he has been hospitalized. Has a neurologist visited him yet? He needs to get an EEG test done? this test measures and records the electrical activity of your brain. Special sensors (electrodes) are attached to your head and hooked by wires to a computer. The computer records your brain's electrical activity on the screen or on paper as wavy lines. People with seizure disorder, can be seen by the changes in the normal pattern of the brain's electrical activity. Make sure a neurologist see him, and in regards to the blood cloths blood thinner is the best thing for now until they can desolve them, he should walk and move around as much as the nursing staff allow him to, this will also help blood circulate better. I hope he feels better and keep us posted.
