A case of status epilepticus. Use of thiopentone and IPPV to control otherwise refractory convulsions.

Abstract

A case of status epilepticus which was refractory to conventional anticonvulsants is described. The total dosage of thiopentone necessary to control the convulsions is greater than that previously reported.
