  • Description
  • Details

Epilepsy: an Atlas of Investigation and Management is a comprehensive visual guide, illustrating each type of epilepsy with real clinical cases. Algorithms and tables summarize pharmacologic therapies and illustrate treatment options and the appendices provide straightforward instruction on reading and interpreting the EEG.

This atlas has been written as an introduction to assessment and diagnosis for clinicians with limited experience of epilepsy: specialists in internal medicine, trainees in neurology and primary care physicians, who are tasked with the care of epileptic patients. The book deals with the pathophysiology of epilepsy and highlights the most important clinical aspects and complications of the disease, equipping readers with the knowledge and the skills to be able to deal with epileptic patients in a safe manner and give them the best chance to become seizure free.
