Accessible to the full range of clinicians who care for neonates, this expert guide addresses issues critical to diagnosing and managing neonatal seizures, providing dozens of helpful diagnostic, treatment, and prognostic algorithms, convenient summary tables, and illustrative EEG tracings and corresponding neuroimaging.

Fully explored are recent advances in our understanding of the developmental neurobiology of seizures, revamped seizure classification schemes, the clinical utility of electroencephalography and EEG-polygraphic-video monitoring, and the risks and benefits of available therapeutic interventions.

Written by two leading authorities in the field, Diagnosis and Management of Neonatal Seizures offers a systematic and in-depth review of basic neuroscience, epidemiology, classification and characterization, pathophysiology, etiology, diagnosis, treatment, and short- and long-term prognostic factors.
