Abstract

This resource is a richly-illustrated guide to the performance and interpretation of EEG and management of epilepsy. This second edition has been thoroughly revised and updated, and features hundreds of detailed EEGs covering the science in extensive scope and detail, beginning with basic electronics and physiology, followed by EEG interpretation, epilepsy diagnosis, and ultimately epilepsy management. It also includes all basic classifications and definitions of seizures and epilepsy, making it the perfect clinical companion. Full-color EEG presentations are featured alongside easy-to-read syntheses of anatomy, physiology, and available treatment modalities. These detailed explanations of wave pattern, presentation, and treatment provide the most informed sense of clinical application and readiness, covering every type of seizure, both epileptic and non-epileptic.
