This textbook is designed to aid the clinician in the initial management of catastrophic neurologic emergencies. The emergency physician is placed in the unenviable position of having to set management priorities in the first critical hour for emergencies from all the medical specialties. Dr Wijdicks provides a practical and easy-to-understand approach to common neurologic emergencies that will be a valuable aid to the emergency physician and the neurologist responding to critical emergencies.
