Status Epilepticus (SE) is a medical emergency and requires prompt and aggressive treatment. Stabilization of airway, breathing and circulation and expeditious.

Diazepam (or midazolam), thiopental and propofol infusion are useful for control of Refractory SE (RSE). Newer drugs are being investigated for use in SE. Mortality and morbidity are highest with SE associated with CNS infections, which is the most important cause of SE in our country. We prefer diazepam infusion. In children the mortality from SE ranges from 3-10% and the morbidity is twice. The outcome depends on the underlying etiology, age, rapidity of SE and adequacy of care. Stabilization of airway, breathing and circulation and expeditious termination of seizures are immediate goals. Intravenous benzodiazepines-diazepam, midazolam or lorazepam and phenytoin are the first line drugs recommended for termination of seizures. Status Epilepticus (SE) is a medical emergency and requires prompt and aggressive treatment. Adherence to a time-framed protocol in the emergency department helps in improving the final outcome.
