Management of Status Epilepticus in children



Convulsive status epilepticus is the most common neurological emergency among children worldwide.

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 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.


The purpose of this learning activity is to provide nurses working with paediatric patients up-to-date information about the appropriate management of children in Status Epilepticus.
