Description

Statistics tell us that as many as 1 in 20 members of the population will suffer a seizure at some point in their lifetime, a figure which becomes even more likely if one lives to the age of 80. Thus, a careful evidence based approach to the patient with seizure is immensely useful to the emergency physician. The authors evaluate current studies on the subject, discuss seizures as they relate to specific patient groups, and, ultimately, make recommendations on this important subject.
