Status Epilepticus (SE) is one of the most commonly occurring neurologic emergencies and there are about 200,000 episodes of SE in the US with a high mortality risk of around 22% and requires rapid effective treatment for optimal response to therapy and outcome and because of necessity to act fast and accurately, it is obviously frightening for the new learners. Using a Hi-fidelity manikins for simulation of SE ensures no harm to the real patients but definitely help improving the skills of the trainees which we wanted to show with our two year data collection and analysis.
