about

Norman Delanty brings together an authoritative panel of practicing physicians to describe the circumstances under which seizures develop in broad spectrum of conditions, how to recognize their potentially life-threatening complications, and how they may be effectively treated within their disease contexts. Comprehensive discussions cover seizures caused by organ failure, electrolyte imbalance, and endocrine disorders, and range to those associated with cardiorespiratory disorders, hypertension, and organ transplantation. The authors also fully review seizures caused by fever and systemic infection, medication, alcohol, illicit drug use, and environmental toxins, as well as seizures in cancer patients. Broad ranging and relevant across many medical specialties, Seizures: Medical Causes and Management illuminates for today's neurologist, primary care physician, and specialists in a wide variety of medical disorders the causes and optimal management of seizures, creating along the way a "must have" reference for almost anyone practicing medicine.

As such it is destined to become a "must have" book for almost anyone practicing medicine-in the office or in the hospital-regardless of one's specialty or the mix of patient's in one's practice. Seizures are big events in the life of an individual. Seizures have big consequences. Seizures deserve big treatment. Norman Delanty has recognized this and with this book has filled a significant hole in our medical literature." -Marc A.
