Seizure Log for HanDBase - "Seizure Log" is an applet/database that is designed to be a rapid data collection tool for use in recording observed and reported seizures. It is intended for both para-professional/allied health AND families with loved ones suffering from seizures/epilepsy. Has TONS of data in the pull-down menus&text boxes that can be used for rapid, accurate identification and recording of seizure attributes/manifestations for use in reporting the information to doctors/clinicians/caregivers. Features include automatic time-stamping of a seizure "start time" when you create a record so you can go immediately to describing the event once the person is made safe; it offers an easy selection of "seizure end time" AND automatically calculates the duration of the seizure. It can help you describe a seizure (with incredible detail)even when your thought processes are operated on by stress/excitement of the moment. Data was pulled from many numerous authoritative medical journals and epilepsy resources.
As a social worker with 38 developmentally disabled clients, I have observed a great many seizures over the years. It was not until my son was diagnosed with possible epilepsy that I began looking the world-over for a tool that allows one to accurately and rapidly record seizure events---I came up with nothing (there was nothing out there). I found this astonishing especially in light of the fact that diagnosing of Epilepsy is heavily predicated on family history and observation/reporting of seizure events, not to mention that treatment of the condition is even more predicated on the type of seizure based on descriptions of manifestations of the event. This tool was intended to eliminate that resource defecit. It may be the only tool/applet out anywhere like it.
