In recent times, the definition of status epilepticus (SE) has changed and relies heavily on the length of a seizure. The longer a seizure lasts, the less likely it will stop without medication. Very long seizures can increase the chance of death and it is therefore vital that nurses are able to identify long seizures early, so that treatment can commence early and outcomes can be improved.
In this webinar, we will cover the definition of status epilepticus, assessment and management of a child in status and some of the most recent research in the treatment of status.
In this video learning activity, you will:
- Define status epilepticus
- Acquire knowledge about the assessment of a child in status
- Gain an understanding of the management & treatment of status
- Review the most recent research in the treatment of status
This learning activity is one hour in duration. 1 hour of active learning = 1 CPD hour
You will receive a certificate after completing a short quiz to use in your professional development portfolio.
