Pruritus in the inguinal region during fosphenytoin infusion is not an allergic reaction and does not require stoppage of the drug although slowing the rate may help decrease the itching. Although diazepam has a much longer elimination half-life, it is rapidly redistributed from the brain to the peripheral fat stores due to its high lipid solubility, which accounts for its shorter anticonvulsant activity.

Revisión del estado epiléptico convulsivo pediátrico y su manejo antiepiléptico

Recent indications demonstrate that this may cause more harm than good. Benzodiazepines, when administered concomitantly with IV propofol, have a dose-sparing effect on propofol and so lower doses can be equally effective. The factors associated with high mortality include refractory seizures, acute symptomatic etiologies e. It is useful in patients who do not recover consciousness once the convulsive seizure has been aborted.

The drug undergoes hepatic transformation into an active metabolite that is cleared by the kidneys. It appears that in SE the innate inhibitory mechanisms in the brain that put a halt to the seizure are no longer effective. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. For Pubmed, the following terms were used:. Medications such as pentobarbitone may depress the immune response of the subjects and thereby predispose them to infections.

Random blood sugar Electrolytes – sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium Complete blood count Renal function test, liver function test Peileptico drug level Arterial blood gas. Pharmacokinetic parameters of commonly used drugs for status epilepticus[ 34 ].

The epioeptico was deemed successful if the status epilepticus had terminated at the time of arrival in the emergency department. Lamsa K, Taira T.

The activation of NMDA receptors results in increased levels of intracellular calcium, which may responsible for the nerve cell injury seen in patients with SE. Treatment of community-onset, childhood convulsive status epilepticus: Rather, therapy choice ultimately must include consideration of the individual patient’s clinical data along with the local esstatus and cost feasibility of different treatment options.

Status epilepticus

Having clear recommendations may make it easier for parents to convey their needs to schools and schools to be provided with the appropriate resources. Efficacy of buccal midazolam compared to intravenous diazepam in controlling convulsions in children: SE often fails to respond or gets protracted because of deficiencies in the management.

Clinical and electroencephalographic classification of epileptic seizures. Double-blind study of lorazepam and diazepam in status epilepticus. To avoid injuries to oral structures, one should resist the urge to forcibly introduce a tongue depressor or other hard objects between locked teeth.


Potentially relevant studies were evaluated for their class of evidence using criteria detailed in Table 1. A prospective, population-based epidemiologic study of status epilepticus in Richmond, Virginia.

Refractory SE is the condition that extends beyond minutes and requires anesthetic management. Benzodiazepines estatjs, lorazepam, midazolam and hydantoin phenytoin, fosphenytoin are the first-line drugs for termination of SE.


Footnotes The following organizations have endorsed this guideline: There is pharmacokinetic evidence to suggest a longer duration of action but not longer half-life for lorazepam compared with diazepam Cardiovascular decompensation during SE, medical complications, and overtreatment with AEDs may also predispose to excess mortality.

Insufficient data exist in adults about the efficacy of levetiracetam as either initial or second therapy level U. Because of adverse events, IV phenobarbital is a reasonable second-therapy alternative level B, one class II study if none of the three recommended therapies are available. These causes must be actively pursued and treated.

Ischemic cell change and its relation to ictal physiological events.
