A case of status epilepticus which was refractory to conventional anticonvulsants is described. The total dosage of thiopentone necessary to control the convulsions is greater than that previously reported. The use of regular plasma estimation of thiopentone levels, and of cortical monitoring with the Cerebral Function Monitor (Ormed Engineering) is described, and is recommended where anticonvulsants are used for prolonged control of status epilepticus and in dosages greater than is common practice.
