Society Guidelines for Seizure Management in Critical and Emergency Care

“EEG should be initiated
within 15-60 minutes of suspected Status Epilepticus
in all patients.”

“EEG should be promptly performed and interpreted for the diagnosis of seizures in all comatose patients after ROSC.

“The requirements bring the standards in closer alignment with guidelines… to maximize patient survival with the best possible neurological outcomes.”

AHA Guidelines

2020 Adult Post-cardiac Arrest Care Algorithm63
Many cardiac arrest patients who survive the initial event will eventually die because of withdrawal of life-sustaining treatment in the setting of neurological injury… Thus, much of post-arrest care focuses on mitigating injury to the brain.63

TJC Requirements

2022 The Joint Commission R3 requires compliance to the 2020 AHA Guidelines for CPR and ECC, including the need for prompt EEG as part of post-resuscitation care.
