This concise and practical text discusses the catastrophic neurologic disorders encountered in an emergency room. Since the first 60 minutes in acute neurologic epidoses are critical and failure to intervene immediately may result in a poor outcome, this resource allows clinicians to quickly find the relevant information they need. The focus of the book is on the initial stabilization and management of the major neurologic abnormalities, such as intracranial hemorrhages, acute meningitis, and head and spine injury. Useful bedside tests and detailed interpretation of neuroimaging are also discussed. This informative book will help neurologists and emergency physicians recognize and treat acute neurologic problems at their early stages of presentation and understand the important link between management in the emergency room and the more prolonged follow-up care in the neurologic intensive care unit.
