Abstract

The approach to treatment of status epilepticus has changed because of the demonstration of decreased mortality with rapid intervention, completion of a randomized, double-blind VA Cooperative study comparing first-line agents, and further understanding of the pathophysiologic changes discovered in experimental animal studies. This article reviews the treatments of generalized convulsive status epilepticus in the prehospital, emergency department, and intensive care unit settings.
