Abstract

Although status epilepticus is uncommon at epilepsy monitoring units, clusters of seizures are common. Intensive monitoring with drug withdrawal must be performed in a highly supervised, hospitalized setting. Inpatient video-EEG monitoring is efficient, with recording of the first epileptic or nonepileptic events in 2 days or less.
