This chapter reviews the literature about intensive monitoring (IM) in status epilepticus (SE). The description of the newly developed and suitable monitoring techniques is followed by a few sections devoted to the clinical application of IM in SE. IM is mostly required to establish the correct diagnosis in SE, particularly in the nonconvulsive type. Similarly, the classification and the medical treatment of SE are greatly improved by IM. Although no definitive data exist, the practical relevance of IM in the prognosis of SE is discussed in detail. Furthermore, special emphasis is given to the value of neuroradiological monitoring in SE, as evidenced by a proper case report. It is concluded that a further development and a more widespread employment of monitoring techniques are needed to assist and improve the management of SE.
