The most common problems for which patients present to the Emergency Department are neurological disorders, including stroke, syncope, back pain and headache. The etiology of the patient's symptoms may be life-threatening, that is, when headache is due to subarachnoid hemorrhage or meningitis, or life-altering, that is, when back pain or weakness is due to spinal cord compression, if not diagnosed and treated urgently. This is a comprehensive textbook of the disorders that are neurological emergencies, including their differential diagnosis, diagnosis and treatment. Designed for any practitioner who makes time-sensitive decisions, Emergency Neurology is an indispensable, one-stop resource to aid your clinical decision-making.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This is a guide to the evaluation and treatment of neurological conditions generally encountered in patients in the hospital. . The intended audience is primarily neurologists, but the book also can be a good resource for emergency medicine physicians, internists, hospitalists, and family practitioners. . This is one of the best books I've seen. . It has achieved a remarkable balance between being concise and thorough. It will become an essential part of my personal library." (Srijana Zarkou, Doody's Review Service, October, 2012)"Emergency Neurology is aimed primarily at junior neurologists and emergency room physicians and covers a wide breadth of common neurological conditions seen in the emergency room. . the illustrations . are useful and laid out in a way that is easy to follow." (Pooja Dassan, British Journal of Hospital Medicine, September, 2012)
