Reviews

“This publication is a very timely and much needed update to the last volume of Seizures in Critical Care published in 2010. … This is an excellent compendium that expands our knowledge of both the physiology and treatment of seizures in most all critically ill patient populations. It is an essential read for all those entrusted with the care of these patients.” (William Brian Gormley, Neurosurgery, Vol. 83 (2), August, 2018)


“A collection of literature reviews describe the impact of seizures on critical care outcomes in a wide range of patient groups and include the varied presentations and treatment options. Critical care providers, neurointensivists, senior critical care trainees, and others involved in critical care practice where seizures may be an issue are an appropriate audience for this book … .” (David J. Dries, Doody's Book Reviews, November, 2017)
