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 at all levels of emergency care, from prehospital management through 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, and extending from the neurological examination and neurodiagnostic testing through common neurological presentations to specific neurological conditions and recent developments in brain resuscitation. Pediatric neurology and neurological emergencies of pregnancy are fully covered. Generously illustrated with scans and line diagrams, it also features management algorithms for many conditions, and each chapter ends with a list of 'pearls and pitfalls'. It is a comprehensive survey of best practice for emergency physicians, neurologists, and residents in emergency medicine, neurology, neurosurgery and critical care.

'This book should be a mandatory read for any clinician preparing for a postgraduate examination that may include the immediate management of the neurological emergency. In addition, it is a very useful reference text for the more experienced clinician. By virtue of its format, it is just as easy to dip in to this book to find out specific information, as it is to sit down and read around a whole subject. As mentioned previously, neurological presentations tend to cause a significant amount of anxiety in emergency physicians. This book will hopefully help to demystify what is actually a logical and interesting aspect to the emergency department caseload.' Resuscitation
'... well written with the emergency physician in mind ... I recommend Emergency Neurology: Principles and Practice for inclusion in the libraries of emergency physicians and as a teaching reference for emergency medicine residents and out-of-hospital care providers.' Selim Suner, MD, MS, Brown University
"This is a very good book and one that any ER physician can read with both pleasure and benefit. The advice is solid and reasonable. The organization of the book and the chapters is admirable. Each chapter ends with a instructive "Pearls and Pitfalls" section that carefully delineates the most important "take-home" points. ER physicians will enjoy reading this book -- and learn much from it too." Doody's Review Service G
"I can confidently say that this work will serve to increase the emergency physician's sense of confidence in neurological assessment and management by providing a conceptual framework that leads to specific steps in approaching the patient with a neurological emergency." John G. Wigenstein, MD, from the Foreword
"A welcome addition to the literature of emergency medicine and overall an excellent summary of neurology for the practicing emergency physician." The Journal of Emergency Medicine
