  • After the publication of Emergency Neurology: Principles and Practice, many emergency medicine residents inquired whether a handbook based on the main text would be available. As a result, we developed a handbook to be carried by emergency physicians, extending our initial goal of disseminaing the principles of emergency neurology to emergency physicians and providing a ready resource in caring for patients with neurological emergencies. As we embarked upon the handbook project, we realized that this is a daunting challenge.

Although aspects of the neurological examination differ based on the clinical situation, the standard elements of the neurological examination remain the same. A review of the neurological examination as it applies to emergency department evaluation is provided....

  • It is an exciting time for the discipline of cognitive neuroscience. In the past 10 years we have witnessed an explosion in the development and advancement of methods that allow us to precisely examine the neural mechanisms underlying cognitive processes. Functional magnetic resonance imaging, for example, has provided markedly improved spatial and temporal resolution of brain structure and function, which has led to answers to new questions, and the reexamination of old questions.

  • STROKE IS THE THIRD MOST COMMON CAUSE of death and disability in the US. It is a complex disease, with many causes, many presentations, and many levels of severity. Despite recent medical advances, stroke remains a diffi cult disease to diagnose and treat. In recognition of the importance of this common disorder, the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) instituted a new subspecialty examination in 2005.

  • Clinical neurophysiology encompasses the application of a wide variety of electrophysiologic methods to the analysis and recording of normal function, as well as to the diagnosis and treatment of diseases involving the central nervous system, peripheral nervous system, autonomic nervous system and muscles. The steady increase in growth of subspecialty knowledge and skill in neurology has led to the need for a compilation of the whole range of physiologic methods applied in each of the major categories of neurologic disease.

  • Superior Sulcus or Pancoast Tumors Non-small cell carcinomas of the superior pulmonary sulcus producing Pancoast's syndrome appear to behave differently than lung cancers at other sites and are usually treated with combined radiotherapy and surgery. Patients with these carcinomas should have the usual preoperative staging procedures, including mediastinoscopy and CT and PET scans, to determine tumor extent and a neurologic examination (and sometimes nerve conduction studies) to document involvement or impingement of nerves in the region.

  • The idea of a book to help neurologists prepare for the oral part of the Neurology Board Examination stemmed from numerous exchanges with colleagues on how they prepared for this important exam. Nobody seemed to have the magic formula to maximize their chances of passing and there were wide disparities of opinion on what they considered the best preparation. Some recommendations were based on often inaccurate impressions, others were the distorted product of their stressful experience while taking the test.

  • The neurologic examination includes a search for focal weakness or muscle atrophy, focal reflex changes, diminished sensation in the legs, and signs of spinal cord injury. The examiner should be alert to the possibility of breakaway weakness, defined as fluctuating strength during muscle testing. Breakaway weakness may be due to pain or a combination of pain and underlying true weakness. Breakaway weakness without pain is due to lack of effort. In uncertain cases, electromyography (EMG) can determine whether or not true weakness is present.

  • Evaluation of Patients with Pathologic Vestibular Vertigo The evaluation depends on whether a central etiology is suspected (Table 22-2). If so, MRI of the head is mandatory. Such an examination is rarely helpful in cases of recurrent monosymptomatic vertigo with a normal neurologic examination. Typical BPPV requires no investigation after the diagnosis is made (Table 22-1).

  • Physical Examination The general physical examination in a delirious patient should include a careful screening for signs of infection such as fever, tachypnea, pulmonary consolidation, heart murmur, or stiff neck. The patient's fluid status should be assessed; both dehydration and fluid overload with resultant hypoxia have been associated with delirium, and each is usually easily rectified. The appearance of the skin can be helpful, showing jaundice in hepatic encephalopathy, cyanosis in hypoxia, or needle tracks in patients using intravenous drugs.

  • Obtaining an accurate 24-hour-sleep-wake history is extremly important. History should be focused also on relevant factors as medical history, compensation of epilepsy, type and frequency of epileptic seizures, their incidence according to circadian cycle and actual antiepileptic medication, or other drug and medication use. Also social, enviromental or psychological conditions, which may interfere with sleep quality, should be evaluated. Neurological examination in connection with neuroimaging methods (MRI) can detect cerebral leasions as the reason of sleep problems.

  • The results of the IS audit are reported to the management of the organisation, the person responsible for IS audits, and the IT Security Officer (see section 4.9) and integrated into the ISMS process. A clearly defined procedure should be available for this purpose that is stated in a guideline for examining and improving the security process (see [BSI2]). Requirements for eliminating deficiencies and improving quality are the result of the evaluation of the IS audit report. The IT Security Officer derives the corresponding follow-up activities from these requirements.

  • In 1977, Dr. George Engel’s seminal article on the biopsychosocial model of disease, “The Need for a New Medical Model: A Challenge for Biomedicine,” was published in Science. Over 20 years later, the article is still required reading in many training programs in psychiatry, nursing, psychology, and social work, because the biopsychosocial model advances a comprehensive understanding of disease and treatment. The model is derived from general systems theory, which proposes that each system affects and is affected by the other systems....
