In the article, Watkins and colleaguesobserve that SUDEP causes a lot of deaths in people diagnosed with epilepsy. Hence, in reviewing the current understanding of the risk factors, static or modifiable, for SUDEP they reveal how they are managed and show areas that need more evidence in order to show that the technologies are more safe and efficacious. The main challenge in dealing with SUDEP, as highlighted by Watkins and colleages, is that there is inadequate robust research into the matter, inadequate pathological mechanisms, management strategies and variance in methodologies that result in obstacles on how and what to discuss with the individuals suffering from chronic epilepsy.
