About the Authors
  • In this handbook, the emergency physician-neurologist editorial team from the acclaimed comprehensive text Emergency Neurology bring its expertise to a readily accessible reference tool for the emergency department. With a symptom-based emphasis, the text, tables, and illustrations guide the emergency physician in the recognition, diagnosis, and management of neurological disorders both common and complex. Integrating fundamental neurological concepts with the practical realities and demands of emergency care, this handbook features management algorithms for dozens of conditions, and a list of 'pearls and pitfalls' at the conclusion of each of the 38 chapters. This survey of best practices in emergency neurology provides succinct and crucial clinical information for all emergency physicians who diagnose and manage neurologic disorders such as headache, seizure, and spinal cord injury. Emphasizing efficient neurological examination techniques, this is an essential handbook for emergency physicians, internists, and residents.

    • Applies fundamental principles of neurology to demands and constraints of emergency neurology
    • Symptom-based organization with extensive management algorithms, treatment guidelines, illustrations, and tables
    • Successful Emergency Physician-Neurologist editorial collaboration

    'Principles and Practice of Emergency Neurology incorporates major neurological concepts from prehospital management through to final outcome in a pragmatic approach … Reflecting the central role of neurological assessment and management in the daily practice of emergency medicine, this book will undoubtedly become a reference for clinicians thanks to its systematic reviews of the main interventions in emergency neurology.' The Lancet

    'As an aid to the assessment of an individual patient, or to understand more about specific neurological conditions, this text is invaluable … I am sure it will be used widely.' Accident & Emergency Nursing
