Neurological issues in neonates can take a very dramatic but relatively benign form, or can be subtle but representative of serious underlying illness. Differentiating between high- and low-risk presentations can be challenging, but a thorough understanding of pediatric practice guidelines can help emergency department (ED) physicians determine the most appropriate interventions and eliminate potential injury to a child from either excessive intervention or the sequelae of a missed diagnosis. This module will help ED physicians recognize and appropriately treat seizures and other neurologic conditions, and will discuss how to know when to emergently or urgently refer to pediatric neurology.
