  • Description
  • Details

Here is a "how to" manual for knowledgeably conducting the basic neurological examination and confidently applying exam findings to the interpretation of common neurological symptoms.

Today's advanced practice registered nursing and physician assistant programs have been allocating less time to the study of neurology, leaving new practitioners with an uncertain grasp of how to approach the neurological patient.

Step by step, the text describes how to conduct the exam and provides photos, illustrations, and diagrammatic representations of examination steps and concepts. Algorithms bring a logical problem-solving approach to clinical thinking, and reference tables provide information at a glance for the busy practitioner.

The book will be beneficial both for new practitioners who seek mastery of neurology fundamentals and a solid understanding of exam findings, as well as for those who have mastered the fundamentals and wish to gain more sophisticated diagnostic skills in order to accurately analyze the meaning of each symptom in the broader context of neurological practice.

Key features:
- Presents a clear, step-by-step description of how to conduct a neurological examination and apply findings in the clinical setting
- Addresses the needs of both new and seasoned practitioners
- Provides a wealth of illustrations and diagrams to reinforce concepts
- Uses algorithms to enhance a logical problem-solving approach
- Includes quick reference tables for the busy practitioner
