Description

Neurological Skills: A Guide to Examination and Management in Neurology describes the neurological examination and its pitfalls, discussing how physical signs or lack of them can be used to substantiate or refute the hypothesis generated whilst listening to the patient's own account of affairs. This book discusses the first steps in the management of neurological conditions, followed by descriptions of common problems such as headache, attacks of loss of consciousness, memory loss, visual symptoms, facial pain, and vertigo. Severe medical conditions that include tumors, cancer, head injury, strokes, parkinson's disease, involuntary movements, multiple sclerosis, peripheral neuropathy, and diabetes mellitus are also deliberated. This text likewise covers other clinical disorders such as neurosyphilis, granulomas, dysarthria, paraesthesia, gait disorder, and fatigue. This publication is valuable to neurologists and medical students intending to acquire basic knowledge of neurological examination.
