Audio-Digest Foundation announces the release of Neurology Volume 04, Issue 22: Epilepsy and Status Epilepticus.
The goal of this program is to improve the diagnosis and management of epilepsy and status epilepticus. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Evaluate the risks and benefits of treatment after first seizure.
2. Choose appropriate antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) on the basis of mechanism, indication, metabolism, and adverse effects profile.
3. Prescribe appropriate AEDs for special categories of patients, such as women of child-bearing age, pregnant women, and elderly patients.
4. Decide whether to discontinue seizure medications in seizure-free patients.
5. Treat patients who are refractory to AEDs and those with status epilepticus.
The original programs were presented by Joseph I. Sirven, MD, Professor and Chair of Neurology, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, Phoenix, AZ.
