Description

Whatever the practice setting - acute care, rehabilitation, outpatient, extended care, or in a school - turn to this handy pocket guide to the neurological examination. Small in size, but not in content, it covers all of the common neuromuscular conditions, disorders, and diseases you might encountered in patients throughout their lifespans. A spiral binding, thumb tabs and nearly 240 illustrations insure you can find just what you're looking for. Waterproof, reusable pages let you record clinical data and then wipe the pages clean with alcohol. The book presents an overview of neuroanatomy and an outline of a neurological examination in an easy-to-reference, full-color table in the first tabbed section; follows the preferred practice patterns for patients with neuromuscular disorders presented in the "Guide to Physical Therapist Practice, 2nd Edition"; and, addresses neurological examination techniques. The book features standardized tests, differential diagnosis, medical red flags, radiological/imaging techniques and medications for the most common disorders within each tabbed category; incorporates pain assessment within each disorder discussion, where appropriate; and, includes congenital or acquired disorders of the central nervous systems in infancy, childhood, and adolescence within the pediatric section.
