Aims

Status epilepticus (SE) is defined as ongoing seizures lasting longer than five minutes or multiple seizures without recovery. Benzodiazepines (BZDs) are first-line agents for the management of SE. Our objective was to evaluate BZD dosing in SE patients and its effects on clinical/electrographic outcomes.
