Neurology and Neurosurgery

Abstract

Disorders of the nervous system involve one or more of four types of tissues: neurons, supporting neurologic structures, meninges, and blood vessels. Common presenting complaints include pain, dizziness, seizures, impaired consciousness, and disturbances of motor or sensory function. The medical history usually provides “high-payoff” data, but history elicitation may be impeded by manifestations of disease, eg, confusion or coma. The neurologic examination (described in Chapter 44) helps validate hypotheses derived from historic data. Noninvasive and invasive test procedures should be used judiciously, and are most often indicated in CompPri II and III problems.
