Now in its revised, updated Second Edition, this volume offers definitive treatment and patient management guidelines for neurologists faced with a neurological emergency or urgent neurological problem. Unlike texts that are geared to the emergency room physician, this book is written for the neurological specialist, and covers not only true emergencies, but also urgent problems that can develop into emergencies, such as altered consciousness and transient ischemic attacks. In addition, it addresses neurological conditions that are deemed urgent with regard to the management of a chronic illness, such as severe chronic headaches, exacerbation of focal signs in a patient with multiple sclerosis, acute mental status changes in a patient with dementia, and appearance of a new movement disorder in a patient with Parkinson's disease. The editors have reorganized the Second Edition to emphasize a symptomatic approach and focused the chapters for greater consistency of style.

"...revised for greater consistency in style and to emphasize a symptomatic approach...offers definitive patient managment guidelines covering true emergences and also urgent problems that can develop into emergencies."
