A large nationwide study has provided new insights into important risk factors for readmission within 30 days in patients with status epilepticus.

Specialists from Emory University School of Medicine, in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, reviewed data from the National Readmissions Database, identifying a total of 42,232 adult patents with status epilepticus who survived an index hospitalization between January 2013 and September 2015.
