My 3 year old grandson is in Children's hospital in an induced coma as the result of status epilepticus. He seized for hours while being life-flighted here. As they attempt to safely bring him from his coma, I immediately was aware of XL-spikes. The Neuro said in a vernacular that they are already appearing "angry"--meaning that seizures may develop soon.

I am curious though as to the label "XL-event".

Does anyone know what the criteria is to become an XL-event?

Thanks in advance.

Our hearts go out to you and your family. It's been 6 months, if you are still interested I found a article on WebMD about the different types of spikes. http://www.webmd.com/epilepsy/electroencephalogram-eeg-21508?page=3
