Seizures and status epilepticus

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Seizures are one of the most common neurological emergencies encountered by clinicians. Status epilepticus in particular is one of the most serious forms of seizure emergencies associated with considerable morbidity and mortality. However, much has been learned about the pathophysiology and epidemiology of the condition which has led to a paradigm shift in the definition and management of this condition. This chapter explores the current understanding of seizures with an emphasis on status epilepticus. Epidemiology, etiology, diagnosis, and therapeutic interventions are discussed and protocols for successful management are outlined.
