Reflecting the central place of neurological evaluation and management in the daily practice of emergency medicine, this clinician’s reference systematically reviews the main interventions in emergency neurology, at all levels of emergency care, from prehospital management, through the emergency department, to final disposition of the patient. The book is in seven sections, each integrating neurological concepts with the practical realities and demands of emergency care, and extending from the neurological examination and neurodiagnostic testing, through common neurological presentations to specific neurological conditions and recent developments in brain resuscitation. Pediatric neurology and neurological emergencies of pregnancy are fully covered. Generously illustrated with scans and line diagrams, it also features management algorithms for many conditions, and each chapter ends with a list of ‘pearls and pitfalls’. It is a comprehensive survey of best practice for emergency physicians, neurologists, and residents in emergency medicine, neurology, neurosurgery and critical care.
