Instant Neurological Diagnosis: A Companion to NeurobowlCO brings rapid neurologic diagnosis blended into a unique format that combines teaching and entertainment. Like the annual NeurobowlCO competition, this book teaches neurologists to guess the answers of a diagnosis as fast as possible.This book tells users how to make a rapid clinical diagnosis or when to stop and reconsider previous diagnoses. The authors of this book have collected diagnostic short cuts; some from observations and others identified at grand rounds at NeurobowlCO competitions at the American Academy of Neurology conference. These diagnostic shortcuts include Handles - clinical features like facial appearance, how a patientdresses, walks, talks, the patients' history, and physical examination - that might permit a rapid diagnosis. Red Flags are the opposite. They are observations from the history and examination should alert the clinician to reconsider and think of an alternative diagnosis. Key Features Include1. This text is highly visual; supplemented by figures, tables, and video clips.2. Teaches neurologists to make a rapid diagnosis, even for rare diseases.3. Shares tips for better patient management.
