It’s the beginning of a new academic year – and whether or not you are entering the ED for the first time, or returning after a hiatus it’s a good time to catch up on the basics. That’s what these “Starter Packs” are about. I have collated a number of different posts to give you an idea of what I’ve shared over the past few years on a number of common conditions. This one focuses on seizures.
