There have been many attempts at defining the electroencephalography (EEG) characteristics of nonconvulsive status epilepticus (NCSE) without a universally accepted definition. This lack of consensus arises because the EEG expression of NCSE does not exist in isolation, but reflects status epilepticus under the variety of pathologic conditions that occur with age, cerebral development, encephalopathy, and epilepsy syndrome. Current NCSE definitions include “boundary conditions,” in which… Expand
Evolving Concepts of Nonconvulsive Status Epilepticus
TLDR
Most diagnosed NCSE is of a very “non-classic” type, occurring in patients with concomitant medical, neurologic, and traumatic illnesses contributing to and confounding the diagnosis of NCSE. Expand
Nonconvulsive status epilepticus in adults — insights into the invisible
TLDR
This Review compiles epidemiological, clinical and diagnostic aspects of NCSE, and considers current treatment options and prognosis. Expand
The Management of Nonconvulsive Status Epilepticus in Adults
TLDR
Patients without return to baseline after cessation of clinical seizure activity should be evaluated with continuous electroencephalogram monitoring and management should include abortive therapy with benzodiazepines and concurrent loading of a non-sedating anti-seizure drug (ASD). Expand
Nonconvulsive Status Epilepticus in Adults: Types, Pathophysiology, Epidemiology, Etiology, and Diagnosis
TLDR
It is germane to extensively search for the cause of the NCSE because the immediate and proper therapy of the underlying cause of, especially the acute symptomatic, forms of NCSE is at least as important as the antiictal treatment. Expand
Initial Treatment of Nonconvulsive Status Epilepticus
TLDR
There is currently a state of equipoise on how NCSE in coma should be managed or indeed, how aggressive and persistent treatment should be in this condition. Expand
The electroclinical spectrum, etiologies, treatment and outcome of nonconvulsive status epilepticus in the elderly
TLDR
In the elderly, NCSE has heterogeneous electroclinical phenotypes and etiologies and in spite of the treatment limitations conditioned by the comorbidities, more aggressive treatments could be justified to reduce mortality in patients with high STESS scores. Expand
The diagnostic dilemma of non-convulsive status epilepticus in sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease
TLDR
Findings may support the hypothesis of initial NCSE and transformation into prion protein induced encephalopathic EEG and demonstrated clinical usefulness of the Salzburg consensus criteria for NCSE. Expand
Applications of Electroencephalography in Status Epilepticus
TLDR
This chapter briefly introduces the history of EEG, its technical parameters, the principles used in interpreting abnormal EEGs, the association between EEG results and prevalent types of SE, the role of EEG in the treatment and prognosis of various pathologies, and the additional uses of EEG. Expand
Periodic Slow Waves Presenting as Ictal Electroencephalography Findings in Complex Partial Status Epilepticus
TLDR
2 cases of complex partial status epilepticus in which routine EEG showed PSWs without epileptiform activity during the clinical ictal phase are reported, showing that PSWs may appear as ictAL electrographic changes in NCSE. Expand
Status Epilepticus in Adults
TLDR
The proposed classification of SE in 2015 establishes the importance of EEG in the diagnosis and management of the SE by including the EEG axial description to define a correct classification of the patient. Expand

EEG criteria for nonconvulsive status epilepticus
Nonconvulsive status epilepticus (NCSE) represents a prolonged state of seizure(s) (status epilepticus—SE) without marked motor manifestations. NCSE typically encompasses an ictal impairment ofExpand
Nonconvulsive status epilepticus and coma
TLDR
The authors suggest distinguishing NCSE proper and comatose NCSE, which includes coma with continuous lateralized discharges or generalized epileptiform discharges (coma‐LED, coma‐GED), which could act as a starting point to solve terminologic and factual confusion. Expand

TLDR
The clinical features, outcome, and treatment approach for NCSE is examined in 2 different clinical settings, in ambulatory and critically ill patients to distinguish similarities and differences in their clinical presentation. Expand
Diagnosis and management of nonconvulsive status epilepticus in children
TLDR
Specific data in childhood are clearly lacking, but extrapolation from adult studies indicates that aggressive treatment is most warranted in comatose patients, and a cautious approach seems to be indicated for absence status epilepticus, complex partial status epilepsypticus and electrical status epileptus during sleep. Expand
Nonconvulsive status epilepticus: a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge in the intensive care setting
TLDR
The focus of this review lies on clinical presentations and electroencephalogram features of comatose patients treated on ICUs and possible diagnostic pitfalls. Expand
Nonconvulsive status epilepticus in adults: Electroclinical differences between proper and comatose forms
TLDR
There are sufficient differences regarding age of onset, history of previous epilepsy, episode duration, mortality rate and clinical presentation between NCSE proper and comatose NCSE to recommend adoption in clinical practice and be taken into account when developing future classifications and therapeutic trials on NCSE. Expand
An assessment of nonconvulsive seizures in the intensive care unit using continuous EEG monitoring
TLDR
Acute symptomatic cases could not be adequately classified as either absence, simple, or complex partial status epilepticus when the impairment of consciousness arose from the initial illness. Expand
Nonconvulsive Status Epilepticus in Adults and Children
TLDR
Nonconvulsive status epilepticus (SE) accounts for approximately one‐quarter of all cases of SE and treatment includes antiepileptic drug(s) (AEDs) and avoidance of seizure precipitants. Expand
Documentation of autonomic seizures and autonomic status epilepticus with ictal EEG in Panayiotopoulos syndrome
TLDR
Data document that PS is a multifocal autonomic epilepsy and support the view that the clinical manifestations are likely to be generated by variable and widely spread epileptogenic foci acting on a temporarily hyperexcitable central autonomic network. Expand
Cefixime-induced nonconvulsive status epilepticus
TLDR
The importance and the difficulty to choose secure antibiotic treatment in epileptic patients, the possible mechanisms by which cephalosporins induce neurotoxicity and the need to stress family components questioning about new drugs assumed are outlined. Expand
