Bipolar disorder refers to a type of mood disorder characterized by cycles of abnormally heightened happiness followed by episodes of depression that can continue from days to weeks. It can be classified into several types including cyclothymic disorder, bipolar I disorder, bipolar II disorder, etc. Mania is an elevated mood that is severe and is linked to psychosis, while hypomania is milder. Manic episodes that last at least a week are the defining symptom of bipolar I disorder, whereas hypomanic episodes characterize cyclothymic and bipolar II disorder. The diagnosis of bipolar disorder can be done using a variety of tools including blood tests, physical examination, a mental health assessment and examination of medical history. Bipolar disorder is treatable with a combination of factors such as adopting a healthy lifestyle, medication, appropriate medical care and talk therapy. This book is a valuable compilation of topics, ranging from the basic to the most complex advancements in the study of bipolar disorder. It strives to provide a fair idea about this medical condition and to help develop a better understanding of the latest advances in its clinical management. Those in search of information to further their knowledge will be greatly assisted by this book.
