Managing status epilepticus–Neurology Masterclass

When seizures persist for more than five minutes or don’t respond to first and second-line anticonvulsants, the patient is considered to be in status epilepticus. Untreated, this can be fatal or leave a patient with permanent neurological injury.

Don’t panic. Management of status epilepticus is relatively straightforward and is usually very effective. A critical point to recognize is that the goal is to get the seizure under control within 30 minutes.

Watch this video, from our Neurology Masterclass: Managing Emergencies, for the full process for managing status epilepticus.
