Abstract

CORRELATION OF LABORATORY INVESTIGATIONS BASED ON DISEASE CONFIRMATION OF EPILEPSY - IN A TERTIARY CARE HOSPITAL

Satya Siva Prasad* and Vankeshwaram Varun Kumar

ABSTRACT

To correlate laboratory investigation with disease conformation. Prospective observational study was conducted in, In-patient departments of General Medicine and Peadiatrics. Epilepsy affects approximately 1 percent of the population and is characterized by recurrent unprovoked seizures. A careful clinical history is often helpful in diagnosis, classification of seizure and epilepsy types, selection of appropriate ancillary studies, selection of anti-epileptic drugs, and formulation of a long-term management plan. This article provides directions and guidelines both for the family practice physician and the specialist in evaluating this patient population in the clinics. From the study it can be concluded that many cases are confirmed without having proper diagnostic tests, this may lead to in-appropriate diagnosis as well as treatment. Were as, confirmation of disease with proper lab investigation will lead to rational therapy which ultimately provides better patient care and decreases the length of hospital stay. Though in few cases patient did not opt for those costly diagnostic tests which were ordered, an appropriate government policy should be developed so that not only treatment but also diagnosis can reach to every citizen, which ultimately leading to better health care and less socio-economic burden.

Keywords: Institutional ethics committee (IEC), Confirmational diagnosis, Epilepsy, Graphical representation, Disease confirmation.
