You are seeing a 15 month old who became angry about a toy being taken away, cried, turned blue in the face, passed out, and then developed tonic-clonic activity for 15 seconds. The entire episode lasted 1-2 minutes. The child is playful, drinking from a bottle of juice, and back to baseline in the ED, with a normal physical exam and vital signs. He has never done this before.

Which of the following test(s) is/are most indicated?

  1. Bedside glucose
  2. Electrocardiogram
  3. Point of care hemoglobin
  4. Non-contrast CT head

Which of the tests is indicated?
