Atonic Seizures

Atonic seizures are characterized by the sudden loss of muscle tone, muscles suddenly lose strength. The eyelids may droop, the head may nod, and the person may drop things and often falls to the ground. The person usually remains conscious.

Atonic seizures often begin in childhood.  Usually descriptions of the seizures by witnesses will suggest the diagnosis. Some QEEG monitoring may be performed to confirm it. If the seizures persist, other tests may be used to make sure that changes in the heart rhythm or blood pressure are not causing the patient to fall down.
