the SEDD

How accurate is the SEDD? It's the average cost of an ED visit in the US, correct? If so, it's likely to be much, much higher than the average cost of an ED visit for IV hydration. Not sure if this $700 dollar or so cost is correct. Any evidence on accuracy for pediatric non-emergent ED visits?
