What does the term status epilepticus refer to?

Status epilepticus is a term that refers to a seizure that does not subside after several minutes. This can be life-threatening if not treated.

Epilepticus refers to people with epilepsy. Epilepsy has something to do with the brain and seizures. Maybe epilepticus is an adjective that describes a symptom of epilepsy.
