In the MEDICAL EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT article, "Status Epilepticus," published in the Oct 27 issue (234:419-420, 1975), an error was made in drug dose. On p 420, the sentence describing phenobarbital dosage (beginning in line 17 of column 1) should read "It may be repeated at 10- to 20-minute intervals but should not exceed a maximum of 1,000 mg (15 grains)." As published, the sentence incorrectly ended "1,000 mg (9 grains)."
