Neurological Case Histories (Oxford Case Histories) 1st Edition

51twxv2npl-_sx331_bo1204203200_

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=0192631624]

This book is a collection of over 50 case histories of patients with predominantly acute neurological illness, with particular emphasis on conditions that present to physicians in both acute general (Internal) medicine and neurology, including headache, encephalopathy and altered consciousness, behavioural disturbance, seizures and focal deficits. The majority of the cases have endocrine, vascular, infectious or metabolic aetiologies and include examples of common conditions presenting in unusual ways. The differential diagnosis in such cases is often broad but rapid diagnosis and treatment is often paramount. Each case is outlined in brief and is followed by several questions on clinically important aspects of the diagnosis and management. The answers are accompanied by a detailed discussion of the differential diagnosis, together with other clinically important aspects of the condition. The text is complimented by over 170 radiographic illustrations. The question-and-answer format is designed to enhance the reader’s diagnostic ability and clinical understanding.

Neuroanatomy: Draw It to Know It 1 Csm Edition

519yb50rxul-_sx384_bo1204203200_

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=0195369947]

If you can’t draw it, you don’t know it: that was the rule of the late neuroanatomist William DeMyer, MD. Yet books do not encourage us to draw and redraw neuroanatomy. Neuroanatomy: Draw It to Know It teaches neuroanatomy through step-by-step instruction of how to draw neuroanatomical pathways and structures. Its instructive language is highly engaging. Users draw neuroanatomical structures and pathways in several steps so they are remembered and use mental and physical mnemonics to demonstrate difficult anatomical rotations and directional pathways. Anatomical pictures and radiographic images accompany the diagrams to clarify spatially challenging features; relevant synonyms are listed to avoid inter-text confusion; inconsistencies in the neuroanatomy literature are highlighted to mitigate frustration; and historical and current accounts of neuroanatomical systems are presented for perspective. Many neuroanatomy textbooks are great references, but fail to provide a working knowledge of neuroanatomy, and many neuroanatomy handbooks provide bedside pearls, but are too concise to be fully satisfactory. This instructional workbook teaches a comprehensive, but practical approach to neuroanatomy; it includes references where necessary but steers users toward key clinical features. Most importantly, Neuroanatomy: Draw It to Know It instructs the reader to draw and redraw the anatomy and teaches an active approach to learning.

Plum and Posner’s Diagnosis of Stupor and Coma (Contemporary Neurology Series) 4th Edition

51i7estvh2l-_sx346_bo1204203200_

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=0195321316]

Delirium, stupor and coma are common clinical states that confront clinicians in almost every medical specialty. With appropriate diagnosis and treatment, coma can often be treated successfully. Conversely, delay in diagnosis and treatment may be lethal. This monograph provides an update on the clinical approach that was laid out in the previous 3 editions. It describes an approach for the physician at the bedside to diagnose and treat alterations of consciousness, based on pathophysiologic principles. The book begins with a description of the physiology of consciousness and the pathophysiology of disorders of consciousness. It continues with a description of the approach to a patient with a disorder of consciousness, emphasizing the bedside examination, but including the use of modern imaging techniques. The important structural and metabolic causes of coma are reviewed in detail. It then describes the emergency treatment, both medical and surgical, of patients with specific disorders of consciousness and their prognosis. New chapters describe the approach to the diagnosis of brain death and the clinical physiology of the vegetative state and minimally conscious state, as well as the ethics of dealing with such patients and their families.

The book is aimed at medical students and residents, in fields from internal medicine and pediatrics to emergency medicine, surgery, neurology, neurosurgery, and psychiatry, who are likely to encounter patients with disordered states of consciousness. It includes historical background and basic neurophysiology that is important for those in the clinical neurosciences, but also lays out a practical approach to the comatose patient that is an important part of the repertoire of all clinicians who provide emergency care for patients with disorders of consciousness

[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.
