Seizure is a medical condition in which the normal nerve cell activities in the brain is disturbed. The basic treatments include the application of sedatives, anticonvulsant, barbiturates or combination therapy with anti-epileptic drugs. The causes pertaining to the seizures include metabolic activities, structural changes, side-effect of current medication, infections, and exposure to stress. The commonly utilized seizure detection devices include EEG machine, implanted advisory system devices, electromyography machine, Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) device, Computed tomography device and other novel devices available in the market. The seizures if untreated gives rise to epileptic conditions causing nausea, vomiting and loss of coordination. The seizure detection devices help in diagnosis, monitoring the onset as well as some devices are capable of integrated dose delivery mechanism. The conventional EEG devices are becoming so compact to be used as sensors, watches and headphones as well as implantable for detecting and monitoring the onset of the condition preventing from the fatal conditions.
