Reflex Anoxic Seizures (RAS) occur mainly in young children but can occur at any age. RAS is also known by the following names: Stephenson's Seizure, White Breath Holding, Pallid Syncope. Unfortunately, because of the symptoms, it is known that RAS is often mis-diagnosed as temper tantrums, breath holding, or as epilepsy. The aims of the STARS group is as follows:
- To act as an information and support group.
- To bring about public and professional awareness of RAS thus avoiding misdiagnosis.
- To gather more information to aid research into RAS.
