Reviews

From the reviews:

“This quick-reference guide for commonly encountered neurological emergencies uses an outline format to present a stepwise approach to evaluating, stabilizing, and treating critically ill patients. … It is appropriate for medical students and residents rotating through the neurology ward and ICU, as well as midlevel practitioners. … It uses a logical approach to the bedside assessment of a critically ill patient presenting with neurological symptoms or conditions.” (Jason Sebesto, Doody’s Book Reviews, December, 2013)
