ERGO has together with colleagues in Bergen and Trondheim arranged the first Nordic Status Epilepticus meeting in 2021. Status epilepticus, a condition of continuous epileptic activity, is a common medical emergency associated with high morbidity and mortality. In a recent publication from Oslo University Hospital, mortality was still around 10%. Earlier studies have shown mortality rates from 3–50% depending on etiology. About 9–31% of patients with status epilepticus fail to respond to standard treatment.
There are still several unsolved problems related to status epilepticus and its treatment, especially in the refractory cases. This meeting addressed several of the questions related to definitions, diagnostic monitoring and modern treatment of status.
