PAROXYSMAL MOTOR EVENTS
term paroxysmal motor event refers to any sudden change in motor activity
with or without associated autonomic, behavioral or respiratory rate changes
(other than apnea).
Most paroxysmal motor events are characterized by an increase in motor
activity. Decreased motor activity is seldom sudden enough to be considered
a paroxysmal motor event.
