About

Convulsion is a common pediatric disorder and there is strong relation between convulsion and cardiovascular system which revealed by ECG monitoring and there are many ECG abnormalities attributed to different causes of convulsions, A 12-lead ECG is a low-cost test and can detect clinically significant abnormalities such as long QTc interval or heart block. Doing an ECG in all patients presenting with seizures clinic, inevitably, pick up non-specific abnormalities which require further investigation. Moreover, a normal 12-lead ECG does not exclude a cardiovascular cause for collapse and for those in whom a cardiac cause is still suspected despite a normal ECG, referral to a cardiologist is advisable
