Seizure Disorders in Children

Seizure Disorders in Children This article is only available in the PDF format. Download the PDF to view the article, as well as its associated figures and tables. Abstract This book is well planned and clearly presented for all clinicians who care for children with seizures. There are three sections—the diagnosis of seizures, the use of antiepileptic drugs, and specific seizure problems in childhood. A 41-page appendix containing practical information, such as drug availability and suppliers, a list of pharmaceutical firms and pertinent addresses, and a very helpful illustrated product identification list, is included. One appendix, listing comprehensive epilepsy centers in the United States is no longer current. The first section describes the pertinent issues of diagnosis and lists which diagnostic tests are available, required, and cost-effective. Current classification and descriptions of seizures, common and uncommon epileptic syndromes, and nonconvulsive states are also discussed and illustrated with the use of tables. In the second section, the authors discuss the initiation and chronic administration of antiepileptic drugs, which drugs are available, potential drug interactions, and the clinical use of pharmacokinetics. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png American Journal of Diseases of Children American Medical Association
