Friday 10/7/11 CPPS Case – For In-Class Discussion Instructions: You will be preparing for this week’s session using the vast knowledge bases of your predefined CPPS student groups... Below you will find a case of a patient with a seizure disorder. Please read the case materials and the associated questions carefully. Then, utilize the reading assignment posted with this case [A copy of a recently-enacted Connecticut State Law concerning antiepileptic medications] as well as your knowledge and/or class materials from your P1 year courses to develop what you think are the appropriate answers to each question. You should find that you will have to draw from knowledge obtained during your ANS Module, as well as from your coursework in Pharmaceutics, Pharmacokinetics, Communications, and Public Health. You will notice that some questions may be designed more to stimulate discussion of a controversial issue or an ethical dilemma. In these instances, you (your group) may choose to take one position on the issue—conversely, your group may choose to think about and be prepared to take many different stances on the situation that was presented. Each student group should bring at least two copies of your notes / answers to the questions...as we will be collecting one copy from your group at the start of your CPPS session.

Patient Case: B.C. is an 18 year old, 115 lb, female college student who was recently admitted to the hospital. She had no history of reported seizures until earlier today before her admission.

More specifically, her mother also noted that B.C. was behaving “oddly”—she abruptly stood up from the kitchen table and began to clumsily walk around the kitchen, unresponsive to her mother’s attempts to redirect her back to the table. After about 1 minute, B.C. fell to the floor and convulsed for about 2 minutes. During this

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
