Status Epilepticus, Mechanisms and Management
Edited by Claude G. Wasterlain and David M. Treiman

Interest in status epilepticus--the most extreme form of epilepsy, involving continuous seizures--has surged in the last 20 years. The book focuses on the two areas in which progress has been most rapid: basic mechanisms and treatment. After an overview of history, classification, and epidemiology, the contributors consider clinical phenomenology, biological markers, pathophysiology, brain damage, epileptogenesis, therapeutic principles, pharmacology, and therapeutic management.

Claude G. Wasterlain is Chief of the Department of Neurology at the West Los Angeles VA Medical Center and Distinguished Professor and Vice Chair of the Department of Neurology at UCLA.

David M. Treiman is Director of the Epilepsy Center at the Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center, Phoenix.
