Abstract

  2. Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

The primary objective of the review is to synthesize the available evidence from randomized controlled trials (RCTs):
a) to determine whether a particular anticonvulsant is more effective or safer in controlling status epilepticus as compared to another or placebo (it is unlikely that we will find any placebo controlled trials);
b) to delineate reasons for disagreement in the prescribed regimen and highlight areas for future research.
