A comprehensive approach to the care of patients with neurologic catastrophes after their entry into the emergency department. An invaluable guide for neurologists and the emergency medicine team.
This is a practical handbook on the management of critically ill neurologic patients in the Emergency Department. The focus is on disorders that have the potential for rapid deterioration. For this thoroughly updated second edition, the author has added eight new chapters, seven of which appear in an entirely new first section on the evaluation of presenting symptoms indicating urgency. This unique text will continue to be an invaluable guide for neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, emergency physicians, and their residents and fellows.
