Aim and Objective: To study the treatment protocols of survivors and non survivors of status epilepticus in children. Methodology: prospective study 40 patients admitted in PICU studied for status epilepticus. Data collected for demographic character, detailed history and clinical examination. Patient underwent all required investigations. Standard treatment protocol was followed by paediatric intensivist. Results and Discussion: Younger children are more vulnerable for SE.
