TABLE 1217 Classification of Status Seizures

About 5 to 10 percent of children with epilepsy and 60,000 to 100,000 total epileptics experience one bout of status grand mal (SGM). This condition is a neurologic emergency that could be fatal. The longer the SGM persists, the greater the morbidity and the mortality rates and the more difficult it is to control the seizures. In
