Overview

Since its birth as a series of articles in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry this book has moved into four editions, attesting to its lasting quality as an authoritative introduction to the major neurological emergencies. It is not just a basic reference for physicians, neurologists, neurosurgeons and psychiatrists in training. It has also become a standard text for emergency departments, with its comprehensive yet concise discussions of immediate management. This edition has brought the book right up to date with emphasis on the evidence base for management, including reference to the relevant systematic reviews. With the use of helpful summary boxes, this information -- contributed by internationally respected leaders in their specialties -- is quick to access in the clinical situation.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Kathy J. Rinnert
This text is a collection of peer-reviewed articles that appeared in the 1993 Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Psychiatry on the current management of neurological emergencies. The purpose is to examine current management of neurological emergencies and review the evidence for each recommendation's efficacy. These are worthy objectives given the prevalence of acute neurological events and the primary care physician's role in front-line management of these patients. The editor does an excellent job assembling these authors to review and clarify current management approaches. The text is targeted at the doctor in training, especially residents in internal medicine, accident and emergency medicine, and neurology (including neurosurgery and psychiatry). Additionally, practitioners in family practice and anesthesiology would benefit from its wide review of common problems. Authors of each chapter are specialists in the fields of neurosurgery, psychiatry, or neurology. Illustrations and pictures are rare and black-and-white only. Tables are frequently statistical citations from the scientific literature and duplicate information from the text. Boxes provide important and expanded information touched on in the text. Chapters are generously referenced with numerous recent citations as well as classical, first-time references. Concluding each chapter is a highlighted section that summarizes diagnostic strategies and treatment recommendations. This is an excellent feature for those in need of quick reference. In this collection of manuscripts, citations from the scientific literature are profuse and at times overdone. In all though, each chapter provides a succinct review of thecurrent treatment recommendations and the evidence for their efficacy. It is not a pocket text for ready use at the bedside when acute management is at hand. It will, however, serve to update and rationalize the current diagnostic and therapeutic regimens in use for the most common neurological emergencies.

The editor does an excellent job assembling these authors to review and clarify current management approaches.
Audience: The text is targeted at the doctor in training, especially residents in internal medicine, accident and emergency medicine, and neurology (including neurosurgery and psychiatry). Additionally, practitioners in family practice and anesthesiology would benefit from its wide review of common problems. Authors of each chapter are specialists in the fields of neurosurgery, psychiatry, or neurology.
