  • Overview

    Seizure clusters can be burdensome to patients and the healthcare system. But despite this, one study suggests only 20 percent of patients who experience seizure clusters report taking a rescue medication.1* Dive into this episode to learn how to identify which patients might be appropriate for acute seizure cluster rescue treatment.

    *Results from a 2014 survey of patients, caregivers, and clinicians, in which 861 individuals (259 patients with epilepsy ≥18 years old who experienced a seizure cluster in the past year, 263 caregivers providing care for a patient with a seizure cluster, and 339 clinicians) reported to the Seizure Cluster Burden of Illness US Survey.1
