Seizures and Epilepsy in Childhood by John M. Freeman

Book Description

The award-winning Seizures and Epilepsy in Childhood is the standard resource for parents in need of comprehensive medical information about their child with epilepsy. Now in its third edition, this highly praised book has been thoroughly revised and updated to reflect the latest approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy in childhood, including the use of the ketogenic diet as a treatment for children who either do not respond to traditional drug therapy or who suffer intolerable side effects from medications. In addition to providing up-to-date information about new diagnostic techniques as well as new drugs, diet, and surgical treatments, the authors have included a chapter addressing routine health care for children with epilepsy and a new chapter on complementary and alternative therapies. Also new to this edition are discussions of the progress made in the evaluation for surgery, a chapter on insurance issues, and a section detailing additional resources. "No child's life should be defined by seizures. If we understand how the brain works, what happens during seizures, and how to cope with epilepsy, we can overcome the mythology of epilepsy and fight society's prejudices, allowing every child with epilepsy to reach his or her full potential."-From Seizures and Epilepsy in Childhood

Tough Decisions by John M. Freeman Tough Decisions, Paperback (September 2000)

Tough Decisions places readers in realistic composites of cases the authors have actually seen or managed where they must make tough medical decisions. What happens in them often depends on the reader's decisions and thus gives a sense of pressures that bear on clinical-decision making.
