About the Authors
  • 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. It addresses all levels of emergency care--from prehospital management to 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. Coverage extends from the neurological examination and neurodiagnostic testing to common neurological presentations to specific neurological conditions and recent developments in brain resuscitation. The volume also includes contributions that specifically address pediatric neurology and neurological emergencies of pregnancy. Generously illustrated with scans and line diagrams, the book features management algorithms for many conditions, and each chapter ends with a list of "pearls and pitfalls." This resource is a comprehensive survey of best practice for emergency physicians, neurologists, and residents in emergency medicine, neurology, neurosurgery, and critical care.

    • Comprehensive coverage of all neurological emergencies, from prehospital care to patient disposition
    • Chapters jointly authored by neurologists and emergency physicians
    • Practical approach for clinicians, with many illustrations, treatment guidelines, and 'pearls and pitfalls' for each topic

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This is a very good book and one that any ER physician can read with both pleasure and benefit. The advice is solid and reasonable. The organization of the book and the chapters is admirable. Each chapter ends with a instructive "Pearls and Pitfalls" section that carefully delineates the most important "take-home" points. ER physicians will enjoy reading this book -- and learn much from it too." Doody's Review Service G

    "I can confidently say that this work will serve to increase the emergency physician's sense of confidence in neurological assessment and management by providing a conceptual framework that leads to specific steps in approaching the patient with a neurological emergency." John G. Wigenstein, MD, from the Foreword

    "A welcome addition to the literature of emergency medicine and overall an excellent summary of neurology for the practicing emergency physician." The Journal of Emergency Medicine
