Oxford Handbook of Neurology (Oxford Handbooks Series) 1st Edition

418ku2abrkl-_sx269_bo1204203200_

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=0198509731]

The Oxford Handbook of Neurology is a practical and concise, quick reference guide for use on the ward and in clinical settings. It includes a wealth of information and invaluable clinical guidance passed down by generations of neurologists, but not often available in textbooks. The first section deals with taking a neurological history and examination, including the skills necessary to make a neurological assessment. The second section serves as a useful reference of neuroanatomy with neurological diagrams of the brachial and lumbosacral plexuses as well as the individual peripheral nerves in the limbs, dermatomes and cross-sectional views of the brain stem and skull. Section three outlines differential diagnoses and investigations for common neurological presentations such as headache, loss of consciousness and acute focal neurological deficit. The fourth section covers prevalence, pathophysiology, clinical features, investigations and management of neurological conditions including stroke, epilepsy and multiple sclerosis. Further sections deal with head injury, tumours, neuroradiology, and neurophysiology including EEG, nerve conduction tests, EMG, and evoked potentials giving indications and abnormalities. The handbook also contains useful guidelines, laboratory tests and how to interpret results, information on patient support groups, neurological eponyms, useful addresses and neurological disability scales in common use. This is the essential handbook for neurologists in training and in practice, and all those involved in the care of patients with neurological disorders. It should find a place in the hands of all those caring for neurological patients.

Neuropsychological Assessment of Neuropsychiatric and Neuromedical Disorders 3rd Edition

51kzqtdzmal-_sx354_bo1204203200_

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=0195378547]

This is a major revision of a standard reference work for neuropsychologists, psychiatrists, and neurologists. About one-half of the book contains entirely new work by new contributors. New topics not covered in the previous editions include consideration of common sources of neurocognitive morbidity, such as multiple sclerosis, diabetes, and exposure to heavy metals; psychiatric and behavioral disorders associated wtih traumatic brain injury; neuropsychology in relation to everyday functioning; the effects of cognitive impairment on driving skills, and adherence to medical treatments.

The Third Edition aims to reflect the enormous developments in neuropsychology in terms of research, clinical applications, and growth of the discipline during the past decade. At one time focused on mapping the cognitive and related consequences of brain injuries, research in neuropsychology has now expanded to much broader considerations of the effects of systemic disease, infection, medications, and inflammatory processes on neurocognition and emotion. The Third Edition attemtps to capture these developments while continuing to adhere to the objective of presenting them in a concise manner in a single volume.

Oxford Textbook of Movement Disorders (Oxford Textbooks in Clinical Neurology) 1 Har/Psc Edition

41uzduithcl-_sx387_bo1204203200_

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=0199609535]

The field of movement disorders is one of the key subspecialty areas in clinical neurology, and understanding of the relevant conditions can often be difficult. The scope of this area requires a wide knowledge base, and clinicians might, in the course of a single clinic, need to recall the differential of Huntington’s-like disorders, the gene implicated in dopa-responsive dystonia, and compare a case of suspected neuroacanthocytosis with a ‘classical’ case. Part of the accessible Oxford Textbooks in Clinical Neurology series, this volume covers the basic science and clinical concepts underlying the movement disorders, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of individual hypokinetic and hyperkinetic movement disorders. Specifically written to aid understanding and treatment of a wide range of movement disorders, this textbook includes a useful section covering miscellaneous causes of disordered movement, which are routinely encountered by neurologists. It is also supplemented with illustrative video clips that can be accessed through the concurrent online edition. Although firmly rooted in evidence-based management approaches, the authors included their own top tips and experience on the management of difficult cases where no current guidance exists, engaging the reader and providing a better feel for handling real-world clinical problems. The Oxford Textbook of Movement Disorders is an indispensable reference for neurologists and senior trainees in neurology, as well as any physicians advising people with movement disorders.

Introduction to Clinical Neurology 4th Edition

516f1v3zpwl-_sx333_bo1204203200_

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=0199734844]

All clinicians, regardless of their specialty, encounter patients with weakness, altered sensation, headaches, “spells”, dizziness, sleepiness, mental status changes, and other symptoms that reflect dysfunction of one or more parts of the nervous system. Clinicians need to know how to evaluate such patients, how to determine if the patients are likely to have a neurologic condition, and how to manage them, at least in the initial stages. This book, written by the lead author of the widely cited Neurology Clerkship Core Curriculum, covers the material that clinicians need to know in order to assess and manage the patients they will encounter in general medical practice. The focus throughout is on the “how” and “why” of clinical neurology. Naturally, the book includes extensive factual material about individual disease processes, but the emphasis is on information that is important for understanding why patients with neurologic conditions are managed the way they are. The first three chapters of the book present a systematic way to think about patients with neurologic symptoms, applying a logical approach to diagnosis rather than relying on pattern recognition. Because the neurologic examination is fundamental to diagnosis, this book provides a detailed description of how to perform each step of the examination and an even more extensive discussion of how to interpret the findings. The remaining chapters cover the management of specific disease categories and symptoms, always stressing the reasons for doing particular tests and the rationale for the various treatment options. Although the book does not cite the original literature, it reflects the most current evidence available at the time of publication.

Neuro-oncology 1st Edition

41ltypcnczl-_sx350_bo1204203200_

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=0470655755]

The aim of the Neurology in Practice series is to provide a clinical ‘in the office’ or ‘at the bedside’ guide to effective patient care for neurologists in practice and in training. The tone will be practical, not academic. The working assumption is that readers want to know what (and what not) might or should be done, without over emphasis on the why. That said, it is important to review the crucial basic science necessary for effective diagnosis and management, and to provide reminders in the context of the practical chapters.

The books will not be heavily referenced, in line with a more practical approach. This allows for smoother reading (and also relieves the burden of comprehensive citing from authors). Key evidence (clinical trials, Cochrane or other meta analyses) should be summarized in ‘Evidence at a Glance’ boxes and key references such as reviews, major papers can be provided in the ‘selected bibliography’ at the end of each chapter.

Practical guidance will be provided through:

  • the use of algorithms and guidelines where they are appropriate
  • ‘Tips and Tricks’ boxes – hints on improving outcomes perhaps via practical technique, patient questioning etc
  • ‘Caution’ warning boxes – hints on avoiding problems, perhaps via contraindications
  • ‘Science Revisited’ – quick reminder of the basic science principles necessary for understanding
