...I liked Comparison of the different drugs used to control seizures, with side effects and costs.
...I love the case study aspect from the client phone call to the patient leaving the hospital and that you take into consideration real life scenarios of the clients financial situations. Very informative and enjoyable. I have been in this business for 25yr and this is the best courses I have been seen. Thanks
...Liked the suggestions on how to manage complications that can arise when managing patients with seizures.

...relevant to clinical practice and introduced new drugs...
...As a neurology technician this very relevant to my job. I liked having a chart of the possible seizure medications available. It allowed me to see all the options in a very clear and understandable manner.
...I appreciated that not everything in the case was textbook- ie patient a little older than most epileptics, needed to add a second med, owners didn't go for all the tests recommended (realistic).
...Looking at the bloodwork pre and post medications was interesting to see, as a tech the doctors usually get to analyze and look at bloodwork.
...the list of dosages for the anti convulsant drugs less frequently used.
...the chart of differentials for seizures, differentiating between intracranial vs. extracranial causes; the chart of seizure control medications with side effects and relative cost/expense.
...good information on discontinuation and transition to other medications in case of adverse side effects.
...I work in emergency medicine, and so see seizure patients fairly routinely. It's a good refresher on which meds to start with, and why. It's important for me to understand the potential side effects when caring for these patients.
...I liked how it went further on for treatments and didn't just stop with phenobarbital as the main treatment. Showing that there are multiple treatments for one disease and that the seizures can be managed in different ways was interesting.
...the identification of intra and extracranial sources of seizures. Medication regime for treatment of seizures of intracranial origin.
