resource for the most current diagnostic,prognostic,
and therapeutic information when evaluating many patients
during a limited time frame.Typically, the authors provide references after each subject, to which you can "quote"
to your senior resident or attending or make a dash to
the library, only to return with copies of an up to date journal
article to distribute on rounds while discussing your patient.
One suggestion I offer for improvement would be to include
a brief review of the basic neurological events that we are often
faced with on the wards, such as: CVA (ischemic/thrombotic), seizure,etiologies of dementia/delirium.
1) Tons of up-to-date practical information covering definitions, predisposing conditions, clinical manifestations, physical exam, diagnostic studies, treatment, etc.
2) Well-organized charts and tables balanced by information in outline format.
3) Ring binder and extra space on each page lend themselves to taking notes within the book.
Tiny font size.
