Topic(s): Epilepsy/Clinical Neurophysiology (EEG), Neurohospitalist

Description: Status epilepticus (SE) is a true neurologic emergency. In recent years, there has been a wealth of new information changing our practice on the clinical diagnosis, use of EEG, etiology, and treatment for the various phases and forms of SE. This session will provide a comprehensive overview of the evaluation and treatment of SE and update on newest research and clinical trials.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to diagnose status epilepticus in urgent and unusual presentations; integrate clinical and EEG findings to make a correct diagnosis; recognize and treat cases of nonconvulsive status, avoiding both under-recognition and over-treatment; have a command of the utility and practicalities of EEG monitoring in the management of SE in very ill ICU patients; and utilize several more "aggressive" treatments effectively for the most refractory SE cases.
