The most common problems for which patients present to the Emergency Department are neurological disorders, including stroke, syncope, back pain and headache. The etiology of the patient's symptoms may be life-threatening, that is, when headache is due to subarachnoid hemorrhage or meningitis, or life-altering, that is, when back pain or weakness is due to spinal cord compression, if not diagnosed and treated urgently. This is a comprehensive textbook of the disorders that are neurological emergencies, including their differential diagnosis, diagnosis and treatment. Designed for any practitioner who makes time-sensitive decisions, Emergency Neurology is an indispensable, one-stop resource to aid your clinical decision-making.

What Do I Do Now? Emergency Neurology is designed as a resource for clinicians at all levels of training in all fields of medicine who treat patients with urgent and emergent neurological syndromes. It uses a novel approach focusing on the "clinical impasse" that so often occurs in complex cases, and emphasizes the creative intellectual process clinicians relish. Authored by Morris Levin, along with colleagues from the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, this volume presents 32 common urgent/emergent cases divided in to four distinct sections: (1) Diagnostic Questions (ADULT), (2) Treatment Considerations (ADULT), (3) Ethical, Neuropsychiatric and Legal issues and 4) Pediatric issues. The chapters are short and to the point, bearing in mind the increasing work demands on physicians. Thus, the approach in this book, as in the "What Do I Do Now?" series in general, is highly practical, logical and fun.

The Practice of Emergency and Critical Care Neurology serves as the definitive authoritative reference on the care of the patient with a critical neurologic disorder at risk of deterioration and in need of immediate attention. This work is an expanded new edition of the book on the management of patients with critical neurologic disorders. This single-authored monograph is broad in scope and follows the patients from the very moment they enter the emergency department to their care in the neurosciences intensive care unit. This book condenses the essential information into several sections. These are: The General Principles of Recognition of Critically Ill Neurologic Patients in the Emergency Department, The Evaluation of Presenting Symptoms Indicating Urgency and Critical Emergency, General Principles of Management of Critically Ill Patients, Monitoring Devices and Diagnostic Tests, Complete Management of Specific Disorders in the Neurosciences Intensive Care Unit, Postoperative Neurosurgical and Neurointerventional Complications, Management of Medical Complications and End of Life Care. This accessibly written book differs from the conventional by specifically following the time course of clinical complexities as they emerge and change. It offers advice on how to diagnose and manage acute neuromuscular respiratory failure, acute worrisome headache, acute febrile confusion, acute diplopia, acute movement disorders, acute paraplegia, seizures and coma of uncertain cause in the emergency department. The major disorders requiring neurocritical care are covered in great detail and include traumatic brain injury aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage, cerebral hemorrhage, hemispheric ischemic stroke, basilar artery occlusion, acute bacterial meningitis and encephalitis, myasthenic crisis and severe Guillan Barre syndrome. This book comes with a pocket book of selected tables and figures. This booklet covers all essential points for quick reference and has been considered a 'survival guide' for the house staff.

Fully updated and revised, the second edition of The Practice of Emergency and Critical Care Neurology puts a more modern approach on the practice of emergency neurological care. When most texts within the field focus on the theoretical aspects, this book concentrates on the management of neurologic conditions, recognition of deterioration of neurologic functions, neurosurgical procedures, and immediate interventions. This text also presents hard data to explain why we do what we do. Dr. Wijdicks condenses essential information into several sections comprising of the principles in recognizing critically ill neurologic patients in the emergency department, the evaluation of symptoms indicating critical emergency, general principles of managing critically ill patients, monitoring devices and diagnostic tests, complete management of specific disorders in the neurosciences intensive care unit, postoperative neurosurgical and neurointerventional complications, management of medical complications, and end of life care. Key Features of the New Edition include 1. Additional chapters on critical consults in surgical and medical ICUs, critical care management, and comprehensive monitoring and biomarkers to reflect new research; 2. Rich illustrations using color photos of patients and drawings of important basic concepts of mechanism of acute neurologic disease; 3. Fully updated and comprehensive reference list; 4. A pocket book of selected tables and figures covering all essential points for quick reference and as a survival guide for house staff. This is the go-to guide for every physician, staff neurologist, neurointensivist, resident, and fellow in training with managing acutely ill neurologic patients.

This is the second edition (in two volumes) of a well-received book that reflects current practices in the management of neurological emergencies. It was written bearing in mind the needs of first-contact physicians, who may be neurology trainees, neurology consultants, or interns. Special attention has been paid to various aspects of managing patients at the emergency department, from taking a good clinical history, to completing a quick and focused clinical examination, to investigating and commencing treatment. Neurological emergencies are unique in that they appear abruptly, generally follow a volatile course, and require a prompt yet balanced response. The management of neurological emergencies has been a major challenge in the past, and today, early and aggressive approaches are generally recommended. Exploring these and other aspects, the book offers a valuable asset for all practitioners seeking answers to the questions that inevitably arise while attempting to manage such critical situations.
