Reflecting the central place of neurological evaluation and management in the daily practice of emergency medicine, this clinician's reference systematically reviews the main interventions in emergency neurology. It addresses all levels of emergency care—from prehospital management to the emergency department to final disposition of the patient. The book is in seven sections, each integrating neurological concepts with the practical realities and demands of emergency care. Coverage extends from the neurological examination and neurodiagnostic testing to common neurological presentations to specific neurological conditions and recent developments in brain resuscitation. The volume also includes contributions that specifically address pediatric neurology and neurological emergencies of pregnancy. Generously illustrated with scans and line diagrams, the book features management algorithms for many conditions, and each chapter ends with a list of "pearls and pitfalls." This resource is a comprehensive survey of best practice for emergency physicians, neurologists, and residents in emergency medicine, neurology, neurosurgery, and critical care.
