Table 2 Treatment delays of SE

From: Treatment delay in status epilepticus – more effective prehospital symptom recognition warranted

  1. SE Status epilepticus, EMS Emergency medical services, ED Emergency department, EEG electroencephalogram, BS burst suppression
  2. Time parameters are counted from the onset of SE. In cases where the onset of SE was not witnessed, the parameters are counted from when the patient was discovered
