DEHYDRATION AND MORE SODIUM INTAKE CAN CAUSE SEIZURES
Lawrenceville, NJ (Dr Simone) – I was outside most of the hot, moderately humid day for baseball games for 8 year olds. I saw a middle aged overweight woman fall to the ground. I ran to her and realized she was having seizures. I put her on her side, made sure she was breathing, and held her head for the next 45 minutes. Her cardiac rate was 80 beats per minute. I told someone to call 911 and began questioning her husband. He told me she had a history of seizures but had not had one for more than ten years. She was not taking any medicines. She was outside in this heat without shade for about four hours. She drank three bottles of Gatorade and one half liter bottle of water. She was stable. EMS arrived and took the patient to the hospital.
