This compact handbook provides all the essential specific steps for assessment and management of emergencies in neurology. Edited by an emergency medicine physician and a neurologist, these chapters are easy to review during or after a busy shift. Focus is placed on the acute patient with both common and complex neurological presentations. Also covered are specific, diagnosis-based problems, including traumatic brain injury, stroke, and seizures. Each chapter is filled with relevant computed tomography, magnetic resonance, and vascular studies, as well as many other images, algorithms, and tables. Neurology Emergencies will prove invaluable not only to busy residents in emergency and internal medicine, family practice and neurology, but also medical students who want to excel. This reference guide will also benefit hospitalists and attendings who care for patients with acute neurological problems.
