Event Description

Clinic notes were received for review prior to a patient going for a prophylactic generator replacement. Clinic notes dated (b)(6) 2012 were received. Reported was that she has unknown seizure frequency, but overall her parents think that they get the sense that her seizures are unchanged or possibly worsened since she was last seen in the clinic. She had increased output on the vns when she was last seen (b)(6) two weeks ago, she had some event reported to the family from the nursing home staff, which were concerning for apneic spells. Were told by the nursing home staff that she suddenly appeared to be "out of it"; and would slump over as if she were unresponsive or asleep. At the time she appeared to be turning bluish, and this resolved. She seemed to arouse when she was laid down flat. It was felt that these were not likely epileptiform events. She has a history of apneic spells in the past and does have obstructive sleep apnea per her parents reports. These event have not recurred since that time and she otherwise has been stable. The patient's vimpat was increased and her parents feel like her seizures may be worsening on this. Good faith attempts have been made and thus far no further information has been attained.
