Take our Survey

We want to hear from you! Your input is important to improve how we do pediatric emergency care research, so we invite you to give us your feedback by completing our PediDOSE Community Survey.


OHSU is part of 20 urban locations across the country participating in the research study called PediDOSE. Seizures are one of the most common reasons why people call 9-1-1 for children and can be life-threatening if they do not stop on their own or are stopped by medication. The purpose of this study is to simplify how paramedics give medication to seizing children to stop the seizure and to decrease the number of children still seizing when they arrive at the emergency department.
