Emergency Neurology is designed as a resource for clinicians at all levels of training in all fields of medicine who treat patients with urgent and emergent neurological syndromes. It uses a novel approach focusing on the ‘clinical impasse’ that so often occurs in complex cases, and emphasizes the creative intellectual process clinicians relish. Authored by Morris Levin, along with colleagues from the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, this resource presents 32 common urgent/emergent cases divided in to four distinct sections: (1) Diagnostic Questions (ADULT), (2) Treatment Considerations (ADULT), (3) Ethical, Neuropsychiatric and Legal issues, and 4) Pediatric issues. The chapters are short and to the point, bearing in mind the increasing work demands on physicians, with key questions addressed much as a consultant would do over the phone or in the hallway, and a list of key clinical points appears at the end of each case discussion, followed by a list of suggested articles or chapters for those interested in doing further reading on the subject.
