Abstract

The International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE) recommends to include in Status Epilepticus any type of seizure that “persists for a sufficient lenght of time or is repeated frequently enough that recovery between attacks does not occur”. This generally includes clinical or electroencephalographic seizure activity that lasts at least 30 min.
