Spanish Symposium: Status Epilepticus: Novel Concepts in Pathophysiology and Treatment Strategies
Program Length: 90 minutes
The symposium will present evidence-based information concerning the scientific and clinical fundamentals of status epilepticus (SE) that are relevant for the management of adult and pediatric patients. The pathophysiological consequences of SE, their relationship to SE duration and the need for early intervention will be emphasized. Non-convulsive SE and SE in comatose patients and evidence related to neuronal protection and damage will be emphasized.
• When treating convulsive SE, implement appropriate treatment based on physiological consequences of SE
• Recognize non-convulsive SE and address the risks of neuronal damage in managing patient with non-convulsive SE
• Evaluate pediatric patients for age-related etiologies and consequences of SE and develop treatment strategies that address their specific therapeutic challenges.
