Epilepsy PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Epilepsy free pdf Epilepsy is a common condition, and approximately 3% of the general population will experience a seizure at some point in their lives. The average GP in the UK will have responsibility for about 10 patients with active epilepsy, and about 10-20% of all neurological and paediatric consultations are concerned with epilepsy. Part of the Oxford Neurology Library, this pocketbook is intended to serve as a practical guide for the busy clinician and to summarise, in a clear and concise manner, the clinical presentations, differential diagnosis and investigations and management of this condition, in children and adults. The treatment of epilepsy has been much improved in recent years by the introduction of many new and effective antiepileptic drugs - and this book places strong emphasis on the principles and practice of antiepileptic drug treatment. This book will serve as a useful quick reference to all clinicians who treat patients with epilepsy.
