advance because of the urgent need to provide treatment within 5 minutes of the childs arrival in the emergency department. Moreover, status epilepticus may occur when a child is away from his or her parents; a parent may not be present when the child is taken to the emergency department.

After the doctor has made sure that the child has received treatment and has been stabilized, the doctor or a representative from the study team will contact the parent to let them know that his or her child has been enrolled in this study. At this time, the details of the study will be explained to the parent, and the parent can choose to allow the child to continue in the study or can withdraw the child from the study.

If the parent agrees to continue, small blood samples will be taken from the child and the parent will be interviewed by phone 48 hours later and then 30 days after the child is enrolled to ask about the childs condition.
