Used Book in Good Condition Neurology for the Non-Neurologist, Sixth Edition is a practical guide for primary care physicians, psychiatrists, and other non-neurologist clinicians who encounter patients with neurologic problems. The book begins with overviews of neurologic symptoms, the neurologic examination, diagnostic tests, and neuroradiology, and then covers the full range of neurologic disorders that non-neurologists encounter. Chapters follow a consistent structure with key elements highlighted for quick scanning. Each chapter begins with Key Points and includes Special Clinical Points interspersed with the text to focus readers on the most crucial details. The authors alert readers to Special Considerations in the Hospitalized Patient and When a Non-neurologist Should Consider Referring to a Neurologist. Each chapter ends with an Always Remember section emphasizing the most important practical issues and a series of self-study questions.
Nice book that means just what it says. An excellent first chapter on the neuro exam. A good overview of neurological diagnostics. Then a very readable review of coma, CVD, headache, epilepsy, MS, Parkinson's, peripheral neuropathy, vertigo, behavioral neuro, AD, etc. A nice chapter on the neurotoxic effects of non-neurological drugs. And more. Complete, but as stated, not written for a neurologist. Nice.
I used this text for studying for the boards. It is concise and relatively comprehensive though you will need other texts as a supplement. It was the easiest way to cover a wide range of disorders in a short period of time. The writing is well done and so is the organization. I will continue to use this book as a resource.
