Brief Summary:
Non convulsive status epilepticus is a persistent change in behavioural and or mental process from baseline associated with continuous epileptiform activity in electroencephalograph,it occur in about 50 percent in patients with coma and convulsions and in 8-13 percent in intensive care unit patients

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Status Epilepticus Other: cross sectional

Detailed Description:
Early recognition and treatment of non convulsive status epilepticus are essential to optimize response to treatment and to prevent neurological sequelae, over diagnosis and aggressive use of anticonvulsants can contribute to morbidity and mortality.It displays great diversity in response to anticonvulsants,therefore treatment in intensive care units is required for selected cases .The aetiology and clinical forms are strong predictors for the overall prognosis.Treatment is poorly understood and follows the standard regimen for convulsive status epilepticus
