This book is an invaluable resource for the diagnosis and management of neurological illnesses in the emergency setting. It emphasizes the quality of prognosis to be contingent on the prompt management of these illnesses.
Emergency Neurology, Second Edition follows the exemplary format of the previous edition, with comprehensive chapters on every neurological emergency, including stroke, headache, back pain, dizziness, vertigo, syncope, visual loss, diplopia, facial nerve palsy, weakness, altered mental status, coma, meningitis and encephalitis, seizures, and spinal cord disorders.
