Status epilepticus in adults

Status Epilepticus.

FSE, a form of SE common in young children, is associated with injury to the hippocampus and subsequent temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) in both animals and humans.

Managing Status Epilepticus in the Older Adult

There is a higher incidence of status epilepticus in the older adult population, and it commonly has a nonconvulsive presentation, so it is important to take into account the specific aspects related to the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic changes in older critically-ill adults.

New-onset super-refractory status epilepticus following fever: more than a case of NORSE

Findings point to encephalitis with brainstem involvement and manifesting as cryptogenic new-onset refractory status epilepticus, a immune-mediated disorder found in a healthy 32-year-old woman who came to hospital due to fever and left otalgia.

Antiseizure Drugs

Epilepsy is a chronic disorder of brain function characterized by the recurrent and unpredictable occurrence of seizures. Approximately 1% of the world’s population has epilepsy, which is the fourth

Generalized Convulsive Status Epilepticus in the Adult

Summary: Status epilepticus (SE) is denned as recurrent epileptic seizures without full recovery of consciousness before the next seizure begins, or more‐or‐less continuous clinical and/or electrical

Common to all patients is the need for a clear plan, prompt administration of appropriate drugs in adequate doses, and attention to the possibility of apnea, hypoventilation, or other metabolic abnormalities.

Refractory Generalised Convulsive Status Epilepticus

The ideal new drug for refractory GCSE would be one that has the ability to stop seizures more effectively and safely than current drugs, and that has neuroprotective properties to prevent the brain damage and neurological morbidity caused by GCSE.

Status Epilepticus: A Review of Different Syndromes, Their Current Evaluation, and Treatment

The pharmacology and clinical studies of several anticonvulsant medications used to treat status epilepticus (SE) are focused on, finding each has unique presentations and treatment considerations.

As initial intravenous treatment for overt generalized convulsive status epilepticus, lorazepam is more effective than phenytoin and it is easier to use.

Status epilepticus: Epidemiologic considerations

Status epilepticus (SE) will occur in 50,000 to 60,000 individuals in the United States annually: one third as the presenting symptom in patients with a 1st unprovoked seizure or with epilepsy, one

Prognosis of status epilepticus: role of aetiology, age, and consciousness impairment at presentation

Surviving a first SE episode could lower the mortality and morbidity of subsequent episodes, suggesting that underlying aetiology, rather than SE per se, is the major determinant of outcome.
