Emergent and Urgent Neurology
William J. Weiner, Lisa M. Shulman
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 1999 - Medical - 571 pages
This volume offers definitive treatment and patient management guidelines for neurologists faced with a neurological emergency or urgent neurological problem. Unlike texts geared to the emergency room physician, this book is written for the neurological specialist, and covers not only the true emergencies, but also urgent problems that can develop into emergencies, such as altered consciousness and transient ischemic attacks. In addition, it addresses neurological conditions that are deemed urgent with regard to management of a chronic illness, such as severe chronic headaches, exacerbation of focal signs in a patient with multiple sclerosis, acute mental status changes in a patient with dementia, and appearance of a new movement disorder in a patient with Parkinson's disease. The editors have reorganized this second edition to emphasize a symptomatic approach and have focused the chapters for greater consistency of style.
