About this book

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.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"... kann das Werk ... jedem Neurologen und Neurochirurgen empfohlen werden, der mit neurologischen Notfällen in Berührung kommt ... bietet das Buch eine übersichtliche und noch kompakte Darstellung neurologischer Notfalldiagnostik und Therapie ..." (G. R. Fink, in: Fortschritte der Neurologie Psychiatrie, 2013, Issue 4)

“Karen L. Roos, MD, had a vision for her book Emergency Neurology––to highlight some of the greatest living neurologists as her authors. … The images are informative and plentiful. … CT scans and MRIs appear side by side, a feature that will be useful to all readers. … There are excellent tables in most chapters that provide details about the differential diagnosis, recommended testing, and treatment. All of these will be useful to readers, be they neurologists, emergency physicians, or primary care providers.” (Sandra Schneider, Neurology, May, 2013)

“This is a guide to the evaluation and treatment of neurological conditions generally encountered in patients in the hospital. … The intended audience is primarily neurologists, but the book also can be a good resource for emergency medicine physicians, internists, hospitalists, and family practitioners. … This is one of the best books I’ve seen. … It has achieved a remarkable balance between being concise and thorough. It will become an essential part of my personal library.” (Srijana Zarkou, Doody’s Book Reviews, October, 2012)

“Emergency Neurology is aimed primarily at junior neurologists and emergency room physicians and covers a wide breadth of common neurological conditions seen in the emergency room. … the illustrations … are useful and laid out in a way that is easy to follow.” (Pooja Dassan, British Journal of Hospital Medicine, September, 2012)
