Acute seizure activity (also commonly known as convulsions) is one of the few situations considered a medical emergency for end of life care patients. It requires urgent intervention. This session provides a framework for the immediate management and longer term treatment of acute seizures.

This session was reviewed by Dr Emilia Moretto and Christina Faull and last updated in March 2016.


By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Provide a working definition of acute seizures
• List the likely causes of seizures in an end of life care population
• Describe the signs and symptoms associated with seizures
• Explain the immediate management of acute seizures
• Outline the longer term management of patients with seizures

• Discuss the management of prolonged intractable seizures (Status Epilepticus) as a periterminal event
