The stages of status epilepticus are premonitory, established and refractory, requiring an EEG to assure proper evaluation.

Stages of status epilepticus in the developing brain

Stages of status epilepticus in the developing brain

BACKGROUND: Adult rats undergo five distinct electrographic stages during status epilepticus (SE). Whether developing animals manifest those stages is not.

Unlike P35 rats, P15 rats were less likely to progress through all five stages, and had different behavioral manifestations that did not segregate into distinct stages. Both age groups manifested the five EEG stages of SE, but these occurred at the low dose in the P15 rats, and at the intermediate and high doses in the P35 rats. It subsequently resulted in less severe and shorter stages of SE. Phenobarbital caused an initial increase in paroxysmal beta discharges and in tonic activity and scratching.

Determine in the kainic acid (KA) model: (1) the EEG stages of SE in P15 and P35 rats; (2) the relative susceptibilities of these two age groups to develop SE; and (3) the effect of phenobarbital on SE stages.

Experiment 2: One group of P35 rats received KA (12 mg/kg), and one KA and phenobarbital (70 mg/kg i.p.). Experiment 1: Three groups of P15, and three of P35 rats received intraperitoneally (i.p.) low (5 mg/kg), intermediate (10 mg/kg), or high (15 mg/kg) KA doses. EEGs were recorded through intracranial electrodes and were reviewed and staged blindly.

However, P15 rats are less likely to progress through all these stages. They also have a lower seizure threshold and different behavioral manifestations that do not segregate into separate stages. Phenobarbital shortens and modifies the behavioral and electrographic stages of SE. Both P15 and P35 rats can progress through the five distinct electrographic stages of SE.

Whether developing animals manifest those stages is not yet known. Adult rats undergo five distinct electrographic stages during status epilepticus (SE).

Typically, in Stage 1 (early status epilepticus), therapy is with benzodiazepines. If seizures continue despite this therapy, the patient is said to be in Stage 2.

A complex partial seizure was noted and she was placed on continuous electroencephalography (EEG). After consultation with family it was decided not to escalate treatment due to her overall medical condition. During EEG monitoring she developed generalized convulsive status epilepticus. The case further demonstrates the rapid progression of status epilepticus and exemplifies the need for prompt treatment. She proceeded sequentially through the five stages of status epilepticus, described by Treiman et al. This case is significant in that it is the first report of a single individual experiencing all five stages of status epilepticus displayed on a continuous EEG. (1990) over 22 h and 30 min and then developed electrocerebral silence. A 54-year-old woman was transferred to a university hospital for severe sepsis and multiorgan failure.
