Facebook Live on SUDEP: Knowledge is Power
Epilepsy affects each person and their family differently. One thing remains the same for everyone – wanting to understand the diagnosis, treatment and risks. One risk important to be aware of is known as sudden unexpected death in epilepsy, known as SUDEP. The cause of SUDEP is not known, but it often occurs during or right after a seizure. This is why learning how to stay healthy, work to control your seizures, and reduce your risk is important.
Join Patty Osborne Shafer RN, MN; Jeff Buchhalter MD, PhD; and Sally Schaeffer to talk about SUDEP.
