Quick Overview
The book contains 10 chapters and management protocols, contributed by 14 authors. Chapter 1 lucidly describes the progressive evolution of definition of status epilepticus, especially with reference to the time or duration. Chapters 2 to 5 touch open prehospital management, investigations, monitoring protocols and management guidelines in status epilepticus. Chapter 6 describes about anesthetic agents in status epilepticus. Chapter 7, on refractory and super-refractory status epilepticus, describes current approaches to treatment and reviews various aspects of prognosis. Chapters 9 and 10 on the ‘role of newer drugs’, and ‘altering the management strategies in persons with other comorbidities’ are also well compiled. Chapter 10, on nonconvulsive status epilepticus, needs special mention, since the author has supplemented the EEG tracings to it, for crispness and clarity. The book is capped at the end by the editor herself with a detailed but simplified algorithm, for diagnosing and managing status epilepticus.
