Abstract

Status epilepticus (SE) in children and adults is one of the most common neurology problems confronting the intensivist. Recognition of SE is usually straightforward, but may be complicated by the effects of other diseases or therapies. Emergent treatment is necessary to prevent further brain damage. This article reviews protocols for standard treatments of SE patients and includes recommendations for the management of refractory SE.
