Good News about SUDEP
In this 10-minute Medscape interview, Daniel Friedman, MD, brought us up to date on the latest data about SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy Patients), reported in the June issue of Neurology. According to Dr. Friedman, the incidence of SUDEP has decreased over time, possibly the result of better physician education and improved access to health insurance. That's surprising and encouraging news!
