This fully revised second edition of Seizures in Critical Care: A Guide to Diagnosis and Therapeutics is an essential guide for ICU professionals and neurologists. Incorporating the last five years of advances in the field, this invaluable title keeps the same structure as the previous edition, with sections on epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnostic evaluation and treatment options, but includes an extra chapter on seizure monitoring in the ICU. This edition also adds a number of new sections dedicated to new treatments, such as neurostimulation, hypothermia or resection of the refractory epileptic focus and antiepileptic drugs. In addition, readers will find extra flow charts and treatment algorithms with more specific drug doses. Further, more EEGs with better explanation and labeling for the non-expert intensivist have been added to each section.
Chapter authors comprise the same international group of renowned experts as in the first edition, as well as several new expert contributors. Chapters cover vital topics such as seizures in organ transplant recipients, those resulting from renal and hepatic failure, seizures related to alcohol misuse, and seizures resulting from brain injury and tumors. In all, this new and expanded edition of Seizures in Critical Care: A Guide to Diagnosis and Therapeutics fills evolving needs and entices new interest in the care of patients who suffer epileptic events. Comprehensive and indispensable for ICU professionals and neurologists, this new edition will again meet – and surpass—the need for more in-depth and specialized knowledge about seizures in critical care.
