We conducted a two-year prospective audit to review the paediatric management of Convulsive Status Epilepticus (CSE) in Ireland. Our audit showed that there is considerable variability in the management of CSE in this country. In order to provide optimum care for this potentially life-threatening condition a uniform management strategy is required. We propose a protocol for the treatment of CSE, which should ensure uniform management and optimum care and also provide a template for further study and audit of this important disorder.
