But in order to be able to start this treatment, the doctor or clinical officer needs to know the causes of the seizures and epilepsy, what type of seizure and epilepsy the patient has, and which drug should be used. The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down: A Hmong Child, Her American Doctors, and the Collision of Two Cultures is a book by Anne Fadiman that chronicles the struggles of a Hmong refugee family from Houaysouy, Sainyabuli Province, Laos, the Lees, and their interactions with the health care system in Merced, Robert Entenmann, of St. Olaf College wrote that the book is.

    An international group of recognised experts has contributed to this volume to discuss a variety of topics on epilepsy. The subject matter is diverse, including new concepts in brain circuitry involved in seizure generation, a discussion on reflex epilepsy, reviews and updates on juvenile myoclonic epilepsy, the role of EEG in epilepsy evaluation, the novel possibility of employing scalp EEG.   Epilepsy has many possible causes, including illness, brain injury, and abnormal brain development. In many cases, the cause is unknown. Doctors use brain scans and other tests to diagnose epilepsy. It is important to start treatment right away. There is no cure for epilepsy, but medicines can control seizures for most people.
